Monday morning, a man arriving for work in Canby near 505 NE 3rd Avenue suffered an apparent medical problem that caused him to accelerate across 3,000 feet of a grassy area.  The car was traveling fast when it collided with a Fire Sprinkler Control Valve.
 
The car's airbag deployed.

The male driver was flown on Life Flight to a trauma hospital in Portland.
Life Flight was used, because of traffic delays on I-5 northbound.
