Man Crashes, Dies on Way to Hospital

A man who was hemorrhaging a few hours after a colonoscopy tried to drive himself to the hospital, but lost control of his car, killing himself and his wife, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Witnesses say Carl Sala, 63, was speeding and clipped another car while trying to pass, sending his Toyota Camry crashing into a brick wall. Sala’s wife did not drive at night.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
