Cincinnati Police are investigating a serious crash that occurred today just after 1 p.m. on westbound I-275 and left the driver in critical condition.

Roger Cox, 81, was traveling in his 1999 Lincoln Continental when he suffered an apparent medical event.  Cox drove through the left lane and through the median eventually striking a guardrail.

Cox was transported by the Cincinnati Fire Department to Mercy Hospital in critical condition. 

Cincinnati Police said Cox was wearing his seatbelt and excessive speed and impairment do not appear to be factors in the crash.
