Driver who crashed into Lockport building lost consciousness

LOCKPORT – A pickup driver lost consciousness and crashed into a vacant South Transit Road building on Wednesday, State Police said.

Daniel Ruble, 22, of Lockport, was exiting a driveway on Snyder Drive shortly after 9:30 a.m. when he lost consciousness behind the wheel, crossed the road and drove into the back of a shopping plaza building at 5905 South Transit.

Investigators don’t believe intoxication was a factor, Trooper James O’Callaghan said. Ruble, who was uninjured from the crash, was taken to Eastern Niagara Hospital to be evaluated. No charges were filed.
