(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A St. Joseph woman was taken to the hospital Friday afternoon after she had a seizure behind the wheel.

Kaitlin Sarnowski, 20, was taken to Heartland by ambulance after crashing her car into an outdoor shed at Backyard Portable Buildings, LLC on King Hill Avenue around 3 p.m.

Kaitlin was headed home from her classes at Missouri Western when the accident happened.

Her dad, William Sarnowski, said his daughter is being treated for low blood sugar and seizures. He said she has been having seizures since she was 12 years old, but had not experienced one in about a year.

The accident caused damage to a portable building and to Kaitlin's car but she is expected to recover.
