Wheelchair man gets highway ride
newsimg.bbc.co.uk/med…jpg


A wheelchair user has been taken for a high-speed ride along a US highway after his handlebars became tangled up in the front grille of a lorry.

The back of the 21-year-old man's wheelchair was scooped up as he passed in front of a lorry leaving a petrol station, Michigan state police said.


The truck driver drove off, completely unaware that he had a new passenger.
Passing motorists told police, who found the man unhurt - but still attached to the front of the truck.
He had been kept in his wheelchair by a seatbelt.


Police in the town of Paw Paw, Michigan, said the unidentified man told them "it was quite a ride", but complained only that he had spilled his soda.
The truck reached speeds of 50mph (80km/h) as it drove down the Red Arrow Highway.


After several miles the driver pulled over at the depot of a trucking company where police then told him about the man on his front end.
He refused to believe there was a man in a wheelchair stuck to the front of his truck until he saw it for himself, police said.
