VIRGINIA, MN (Northland's NewsCenter)--An Iron Range man has been hospitalized after having a seizure while driving.

Authorities say the seizure was brought on by the man smoking synthetic marijuana in Virginia, Tuesday morning.

St. Louis County Sheriff's spokespeople say the impaired driver crashed into a parked vehicle in a shopping center parking lot.

The synthetic drug was purchased from a Virginia smoke shop earlier in the morning.

Authorities are urging the public to get informed on the dangers of taking synthetic drugs and say under no circumstance should an impaired person drive.
