BRIGHTON, Colo. - Three people suffered minor injuries Monday afternoon when a male driver passed out from a medical condition and hit five cars parked outside Brighton High School, police said.

The incident happened about 4 p.m. when a man driving north on South 8th Avenue had a medical episode and passed out. His vehicle hit five parked cars, two of which were occupied, said Brighton police spokesman John Bradley.
