OREM, Utah (AP) -- A 24-year-old Orem man fearing he was having a heart attack rushed to the hospital.

On the way, he hit a fence, a light pole and finally a Timpanogos Regional Hospital sign.

Police say Derrick L. Sundquist was not having a heart attack yesterday, but did have symptoms from taking drugs, police said.

He was cited for D-U-I, leaving the scene of three accidents, driving on a revoked license and having no insurance on his vehicle.

Utah County Jail records indicate Sundquist has been arrested 14 times since 2000 on drug, alcohol and violence-related charges.
