Man in wheelchair takes wild 80kmh ride
June 8, 2007 - 11:02AM

A man whose wheelchair became lodged in the grille of a semi-trailer was accidentally pushed down a US highway in a wild 80 kmh ride for more than six kilometres.

The 21-year-old man was unharmed and had been secured to his wheelchair by a seat belt.

"The man spilled his soda pop, but he wasn't upset," said Sgt Kathy Morton of the Michigan State Police.

About 4pm yesterday, a caller told police dispatchers: "You are not going to believe this: There is a semi truck pushing a guy in a wheelchair on Red Arrow Highway," state police said in a release.

Officers stopped the truck - wheelchair still attached, at a trucking company - and the driver did not believe what he was told until he stepped from his cab and saw for himself.

An investigation revealed the man in the wheelchair had pulled in front of the truck at a service station and it somehow became lodged by its handles to the front grille.
