Police: Seymour man pronounced dead after crash likely had medical issue

Update Tuesday 4 p.m.

A Seymour man who was pronounced dead after a crash Friday afternoon likely suffered a medical issue before his car veered off the road, investigators found. 

Witnesses told Alcoa Police Officers that the driver, later identified as Andrew L. Henry, was going northbound on Hall Road when his vehicle veered off the road, crossed through several intersections and a large field before eventually crossing Hall Road again and stopping. 

When officers arrived they found Henry, 68, unrestrained and slumped over in the passenger seat with his feet near the pedals. 

After crews broke the window to remove him they began CPR because he wasn't breathing and had no pulse. 

Once he was taken to the hospital, doctors pronounced him dead. 

Investigators believe Henry may have suffered a heart attack or stroke before the incident.
