Rochester, N.Y. - A Rochester man was discovered dead after his vehicle crashed into a brick stairway of a house on Portland Avenue early Tuesday morning.

Police say the 58-year-old driver was the only occupant of the vehicle and was found unconscious behind the wheel around 3:30 a.m.

He was taken to Rochester General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

After an investigation, police say the man probably experienced a medical condition prior to the crash.

According to police, the crash caused little damage to the car and the stairway.

Police say the impact was so minimal that the people inside the home were not aware of the crash until contacted by officers.

Police say the victim will be identified later in the day on Tuesday.
