State Police are investigating how a small town New Jersey mayor struck six parked vehicles.

Shrewsbury Township Mayor Edward Nolan tells the Asbury Park Press he blacked out after suffering a seizure on Sunday afternoon.

“It’s my personal decision,” Nolan told the paper. “State Police said my license could be taken away for 18 months and then I would have to retest through my doctor and go through motor vehicle. They said that would be up to me.

“My decision is to not continue driving.”

No one was hurt.
