ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A driver in Lee County blacked out at the wheel right before he hit a power pole.

It happened around 9:00 Sunday evening. The man was driving his suburban north on Highway 19 when his wife says he started coughing and blacked out, causing him to swerve off the road.

The back of his SUV was stuck in a ditch. Georgia Power came out to the scene before a tow truck removed the vehicle. EMS workers rushed the man to the hospital. He's expected to be okay.
