CORONER: Medical condition caused accidentFree Access

Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler says an upstate man involved in a single vehicle collision Tuesday suffered a medical condition prior to the crash. “An autopsy Wednesday morning confirmed John Bradley McCullough, 53, of 25 Transit Drive, Greenville, SC, had a cardiac event just moments before the incident rendered him unconscious,” Fowler said.

“Mr. McCullough was driver and lone occupant of a 1999 Toyota Camry that was headed west on Corinth Road at 2:57 p.m. The vehicle went left of the center line, ran off the roadway and collided head-on with a tree. McCullough was pronounced dead at the scene. He was wearing a seatbelt and front airbags did deploy on impact. There were no indications at the scene that the victim attempted to apply brakes prior to the collision which is always an indication something medical could have occurred first. I have ruled the manner of death in this case natural. It will not be considered a traffic fatality,” Fowler said.
