    That is scary. I can`t even imagine something like that happening to me. ....But why was he driving on the road in his wheelchair? Shouldn`t he have been on the sidewalk? Unless he was crossing the street?

    Wait how does that work?

    In order for that to work, he must have had to be in the road facing the same direction as the truck, wtf was he doing there to begin with?

    My buddy was driving back from Pennsylvania in his sedan and a semi in the lane next to him changed lanes without seeing him and basically did what the cops call a "P.I.T" maneuver on by buddy . Only my buddies car stayed on the grill (like a t-bone car accident) but the semi driver dident see or hear him and kept driving for about a mile before he realized something was up and stopped. (this all happened last week) And when my buddy showed me the pics and told me about it, I was like; "That had to be the funnest/scariest ride ever!"

    After watching this video... I think I was wrong lol.

    My hypothesis as to how t5his was possible is this: He was crossing the road, and there was a truck parked right up next to the lights, and it started forward and he never noticed, and it turned and started to push him, and it caused the wheelchair to spin around and then as the truck driver sped up the handlebars got locked up in the grille and away he went.

    Either that or he`s achieved what he set out to do: Pull a stunt and appear on national TV

    I live near where this happened. I think the truck was stopped at a red light and the handicapped man, who is handicapped in the brain, was crossing. The truck went forward when the light went green and he hit the wheelchair, causing it to go sideways. The wheelchair spun around and the handles got stuck in the grille.

    The handicapped man wasn`t able to lift his arms or scream because of his disability. I don`t know what it is though. Poor guy.

    This is why I carry tomatoes with me in my wheelchair. Incase this happens you just throw some up at the windshield, hoping the driver isn`t sleep deprived.

    In the beginning of the clip doesn`t it say that he tried crossing the road but didn`t make the signal in time before the truck came through? So I`m guessing he was in the road, didn`t make it across- the truck got him...

    The angle that the truck got him though doesn`t make sense according to the beginning of the clip.

    Gotta say though, he`s one lucky guy to have his wheelchair perfectly fixed into the grill of the truck like that...

    If you guys would actually listen to the story you would know what happened.. he was crossing the road and the light turned before he finished and the semi moved forward without seeing him. Not that Im saying what happened to this man wasnt horrible. But people start blaming the truck drivers when accidents happen when studies have shown that its the drivers of the smaller cars who are mostly at fault. People just dont like to look at the whole picture. I see people all the time while Im driving move closer and closer to the back of the truck when it clearly states "you cant see my mirrors? I cant see you" and understand they have to take wide turns to be able to make a turn without hitting the sidewalks or anything.. so you see one coming? stay of of its way..

    Imagine your just walking down the road, when you look and only for a moment, see a man in a wheelchair flaying his arms all over the place and screaming while speeding down the road. Then disappears down the highway...
