Police believe a medical issue contributed to a crash Monday in which a silver Saturn ran off Hospital Drive and came to rest against a post next to bleachers at Martinsville High School’s football field.

The driver, a Bassett woman in her early 50s whose identity was not released, apparently was headed to Memorial Hospital due to a medical problem when the vehicle ran off the road, said Martinsville Police Chief Sean Dunn.
