A man died Tuesday after apparently suffering a medical episode and then crashing his truck into a house in northeast Colorado Springs, police said.

Police said the driver of a white pickup was eastbound on Woodland Hills Drive and passed through two intersections before driving into a yard, where he hit two trees and a fence and then crashed into a house on the 6800 block of Cotton Drive. No one was in the house at the time of the crash, police said.

The man was found lying outside of the truck and was pronounced dead on scene. No foul play is suspected, police said.

Police were not able to locate any witnesses but believe the accident occurred many hours before it was reported, just before 5 p.m. Tuesday. The truck crashed in an area that was not visible from the roadway, police said.
