Sneezing fit blamed in crash at Calif. dealership

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (AP) — The California Highway Patrol says a sneezing fit caused a truck driver to crash into nearly a dozen vehicles at a San Francisco Bay-area auto dealership.

CHP officials say Antonio Zamora of Modesto was driving 30 to 35 mph around 4:40 a.m. Thursday when he experienced the sneezing attack that caused the collision at the used-car lot in San Leandro.

Officer Daniel Jacowitz says no one was injured, but 10 cars and trucks were damaged.

Jacowitz says the 42-year-old Zamora wasn't cited, and investigators don't believe drugs or alcohol were involved.
