A Carson City man, possibly suffering a heart attack, lost control of his vehicle and slammed into four parked cars on Highway 50 East on Saturday morning.

According to Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Scott Morron, David Lee Easlick, 72, was westbound just west of the College Parkway intersection on Highway 50 East when he may have lost consciousness about 9:30 a.m.

His Chevrolet Silverado careened across the eastbound traffic lanes, into the parking lot of the 50 East Business Center and barreled through a chain link fence before taking out vehicles parked outside the Phillips Motel.

Morron said when rescuers arrived, the man was unconscious. Rescuers performed CPR and Easlick was taken from the scene by ambulance. There were no other injuries.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or who can provide additional information, is encouraged to contact Trooper Scott Morron at the NHP Carson City substation at (775) 687-7380 or the Department of Public Safety-Communi-

cations Center at (775) 687-0400 regarding case # NHP-1103260308.
