The prominent Perth identity who crashed his BMW near Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital is understood to be businessman John Kizon.
It is believed the 56-year-old suffered a medical episode on his way to the emergency department.
The crash happened on Hospital Avenue in Nedlands at about 9.40pm on Tuesday.
Kizon is currently in a critical but stable condition after being rushed to SCGH by ambulance.
Nine News is reporting detectives spent the night investigating the scene of the crash.
The so-called “colourful Northbridge identity” was recently forced to deny claims made to an American reporter he had any direct financial interest in Perth’s Metro City nightclub.
Kizon made the claims in a bizarre Facebook interview to Greta Van Susteren while he was in Singapore Donald Trump’s historic meeting with Kim Jong-Un.
