WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A man is rushed to the hospital after driving into a field off Loop 11 Monday afternoon.

Crews were called out to the scene a little after noon.

Officers said the man was driving northbound on Loop 11 when they believe he had some type of medical episode.

His truck ended up in a field between a church near Kirby Junior High and a line of trees.

Police told our crews the man came to and was able to stop his truck before it went into a pond.

Our crews on the scene said they saw a power line pole was knocked down and officers did confirm the driver did knock some cables down.

We are working to learn if a grass fire in the area was related to this crash.

The driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
