Man in Wheelchair Pushed 4 Miles by Semi


PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) – A 21-year-old west Michigan man got the ride of a lifetime after his wheelchair became lodged in the grille of a semi-truck and was pushed down a highway, police said.

The man, whose name police did not release, was unharmed but was transferred to a hospital as a precaution, WWMT-TV of Kalamazoo reported. He was secured to his chair by a seat belt, WOOD-TV of Grand Rapids said.

About 4 p.m. Wednesday, a female caller told dispatchers, “You are not going to believe this: There is a semi truck pushing a guy in a wheelchair on Red Arrow Highway,” Michigan State Police said in a release.
