The driver, 63-year-old Gary Nash of Sullivan, was taken to Sullivan County Community Hospital for further investigation into the possibility that a medical episode may have contributed to the crash.
No citations were issued, and investigators say drugs and/or alcohol were not a factor.

The two injured cafe patrons, 81-year-old Madge Booker of Sullivan, and 66-year-old Gloria Bixler of Dugger, were both treated for complaints of pain at the Sullivan County Community Hospital.
