Coroner: Cardiac arrest lead to Phenix City man driving car off Columbus highway

Posted: Updated:

A Phenix City man died Friday evening after going in to cardiac arrest while driving along a highway in Columbus.

Drivers along J R Allen Parkway near Manchester Expressway slowed during the Friday evening rush hour as emergency responders attempted to reach the pickup truck John Johnson, 57, was driving. The vehicle had rolled off the road and down a hill. It came to rest in a wooded area adjacent to the road.

Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan says the cardiac episode was likely the cause of death and caused the vehicle crash.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
