Man Blames "Brain Freeze" for Salina Crash

SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ Salina police say a 66-year-old man whose car crashed into a house blames "brain freeze'' from a cold drink for the mishap.

Robert Schulz told police that the sudden, sharp pain in his head while driving Tuesday afternoon was followed by a "chest freeze.'' Schulz said he had just purchased the flavored, frozen drink from a Sonic restaurant and was drinking it while driving at 3:45 p.m.

But he was hit by the painful sensation that often comes after a big swallow of cold liquid. Schulz said his car then went out of control, left the street and slammed into the front steps of a house.

An ambulance took Schulz to Salina Regional Health Center, where he was treated and released.
