Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. came to the aid Friday of a disoriented motorist who jumped a curb and almost struck a light pole in Wauwatosa, a sheriff's official said.

After the woman's vehicle jumped the curb on W. Watertown Plank Road near U.S. Highway 45 about 2 p.m., paramedics assessed the 63-year-old woman as diabetic with an abnormally low blood sugar level, according to a department news release.

The woman put the car in reverse, but stopped when Clarke, who was driving near the sheriff's office, approached her and had her shut off the vehicle.

Clarke suspected the woman was medically impaired and stayed with her until paramedics arrived to treat her, according to the release.
