Police say a man crashed his car after suffering a heart attack in Southwest Philadelphia.

The accident happened around 12:30 a.m. Saturday near the intersection of 46th Street and Woodland Avenue.

Witnesses tell Action News it appeared the 25-year-old man suffered some sort of medical condition before he collided with another vehicle.

"I tried to open the door and it was still in drive so I got on my radio and radioed my department to call 911.

They say they found him unconscious inside his locked vehicle.

Medics confirmed the medical condition was a heart attack.
