A man was injured and three cars were damaged after a driver sneezed, causing his car to flip over, police in Pennsylvania said.

Exeter Township police said that around 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, 24-year-old Eric Crim was driving on South Fifth Avenue near Chestnut Street.

Crim told police that he looked away from the road when he sneezed, which caused his car to crash into a parked car. His car then flipped over and slammed into a parked car.

The parked car was then pushed into the vehicle parked in front of it. This vehicle then slammed into a third parked vehicle that was occupied by 38-year-old Braulio Vazquez.

Vazquez was taken to the Reading Hospital, where he was treated and released. Crim did not suffer any injuries.
