A driver who suffered a medical emergency drove through a building on the property of a West Islip real estate broker Sunday, fire officials said.

The driver, whose identity was not released, was transported to nearby Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center after the one-car crash.

Suffolk fire officials said the driver had no serious injuries.

The accident occurred on the back lot at Netter Realty on Montauk Highway at about 7:20 p.m., Suffolk County police said. No one was charged.

Volunteers from the West Islip Fire Department responded to the scene. Photos show that the car crashed completely through a detached building at the rear of the property.

That structure was unoccupied at the time.
