Doctors believe former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn suffered a medical episode before crashing his car into a house Thursday.

Police said Flynn lost consciousness behind the wheel before the crash. The 76-year-old was taken to the hospital, where he underwent a minor procedure. Doctors believe Flynn blacked out due to a drop in blood pressure.

No one inside the home was hurt. Flynn is expected to be released from the hospital in the next few days.

Flynn served as mayor of Boston from 1984 to 1993. He resigned in 1993 when President Bill Clinton appointed him to be Ambassador to the Vatican.
