A medical emergency on the part of the driver is suspected to be the cause of a one-car accident Tuesday morning on Tolle Road near the intersection with U.S. Route 50 west of Hillsboro. Highland County Sheriff Donnie Barrera told The Times-Gazette the driver was unconscious when he arrived on the scene shortly before 9 a.m. along with emergency personnel from Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District.
