A 79-year-old man was killed in a car crash Saturday morning in Stuart after authorities say he may have experienced a medical issue.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Richard Teetrick was driving through a parking lot at 2400 NW Federal Highway just before 8:30 a.m. when the possible medical issue may have happened.

Teetrick continued driving through the parking lot, swerving back and forth until the car jumped the curb and hit a tree.

Authorities say Teetrick was taken to Martin Memorial North where he was pronounced dead.

The FHP says the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
