Emergency crews worked to save a man’s life this morning after a one-car accident on Main Street.

The man was driving an Il Panificio restaurant van when he drove up over the curb in front of the restaurant and struck a sign and a tree.

The incident happened just before 9 a.m. near Goodrich Avenue.

Witnesses said the driver appeared to be slumped over the wheel before the accident occurred.

Paramedics were performing CPR on the man as they drove him to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

There’s no word on his current condition.
