A man is in the hospital after suffering a medical event and crashing his car into the Mill Creek in Reading, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

The car, driven by Thomas Gibson, 26, plunged into Mill Creek after police said Gibson suffered a medical event at the stop light on E. Galbraith Road and Waldman Drive. 

Gibson's Chrysler Sebring ran off the north side of E. Galbraith Rd. near the I-75 overpass, according to the sheriff's office. He was swept downstream approximately 200 feet, officials said. 

Witnesses were able to help Gibson out of the vehicle and back onto the creek bank, according to sheriff's office.  

Gibson was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where officials say he is serious but stable condition.

Hamilton County Sheriff's Office says speed, alcohol and drugs are not believed to have been factor in the incident. The crash remains under investigation.
