SALINA, Kan. (AP) _

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.
