FARGO-The driver of a car that smashed into a house in a south Fargo neighborhood Friday evening, Aug. 19, suffered a medical problem prior to the crash, according to Fargo police, who said the man was pronounced dead upon arrival at a hospital.

The incident was reported about 5:30 p.m. at 1839 58th Ave. S., according to a report released by the Fargo Fire Department.

According to the report:

Upon arriving, firefighters found a small car completely inside the house with neighbors performing CPR on the unconscious driver, who was identified by Fargo Police Lt. Joel Vettel Saturday as Keith J. McDougall, 60, of Fargo.

With help from neighbors and police, the first fire crew on scene moved McDougall outside of the house and continued medical care.

Paramedics arrived and McDougall was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Two people were in the home at the time of the accident, but they were upstairs and escaped injury.

Two juveniles in a neighbor's yard also escaped uninjured as the vehicle passed by them.

Firefighters from the Fire Department's technical rescue team used shores and beams to stabilize the house.

Fire crews also assisted a tow truck driver in removing the vehicle from the house.
