A sneezing fit caused a lorry driver in the US to crash into nearly a dozen vehicles at a San Francisco Bay-area car dealership.

California Highway Patrol officials said Antonio Zamora of Modesto was driving at between 30 to 35mph when he experienced the sneezing attack that caused the collision at the used car lot in San Leandro.

Officer Daniel Jacowitz said no one was injured, but 10 cars and lorries were damaged.

Mr Jacowitz said the 42-year-old Mr Zamora was not charged, and investigators do not believe drugs or alcohol were involved.
