A Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) van crashed into a home in West Hartford, Conn., Tuesday afternoon, causing major damage to the house. Police say the driver of the Comcast van lost control of the vehicle because of a medical condition.

Photos of the accident posted by ABC affiliate WTNH-TV showed serious damage to the home, with the Comcast van sitting next to a gaping hole in the house. Two occupants that were in the home at the time of the accident were not injured. While the property was declared "unsafe" by the West Hartford building inspector, repairs were being made Tuesday afternoon.

Comcast Western New England VP of public relations and community investment Kristen Roberts said she couldn't comment about the status of the employee involved in the accident, citing the confidentiality of personal information. But Roberts sent this statement: "First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with our coworker and his/her loved ones as well as with the homeowners impacted by this unfortunate incident.  We are cooperating fully with the local authorities as they investigate this situation and we appreciated their quick work to ensure everyone's immediate safety."
