By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:49 a.m. HST, May 10, 2012

A 69-year-old taxi cab driver was in critical condition after he apparently suffered a heart attack and lost control of his car early Wednesday morning in the Punchbowl area, police said

The incident happened at about 2 a.m. as the man was driving north on Piikoi Street near Mott-Smith Drive. His 2000 grey Lincoln Town car struck a curb, uprooted a sign, hit a light pole and a wall before crashing into a vehicle parked on Piikoi Street.

Paramedics took him to Straub Medical Center in critical condition.

A 20-year-old female passenger in the cab was not injured.
