BOSTON (AP) - Former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn says he suffered a concussion when he crashed his car into a neighbor’s house.

The 76-year-old Flynn in a statement said he was returning to his South Boston home from the gym early Thursday afternoon when he “got weak and completely passed out.”

When he woke up his car had crashed.

Flynn was taken to the hospital. He says he still must undergo more tests.

No one else was injured.

Flynn thanked the EMTs, firefighters, and police who helped him as well as the citizens who have expressed concern.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.

Flynn was mayor from 1984 to 1993, when he resigned to become U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. He ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 1998.
