Associated Press

ATLANTA — Police say an SUV drove off a bridge in downtown Atlanta and fell to the ground below after the driver experienced a medical emergency.

The driver and two passengers in the black Jeep Liberty SUV Wednesday evening were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition with minor injuries. The driver has been cited for driving without a license. No other charges were immediately filed.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the car turned to the left, struck the guardrail and went through it around 6 p.m. Wednesday after the driver suffered a medical emergency.
