50-mph Wheelchair Ride

Big news here on one of the local stations last night...

Yesterday, just a  few miles away, a man was crossing the road in a wheelchair in front of a semi-truck. The truckdriver didn't see him, and starting going when the light turned green. The man's wheelchair got stuck in the grill of the truck, and for the next few miles at speeds up to 50-mph, the man in the wheelchair got the ride of his life.

No one was hurt, and the man in the wheelchair was only bothered that he spilled his drink. That is a positive attitude!

The story was picked up on the wires and transmitted around the world, including this one on the BBC.
