A 23-year-old Lowell man was cited this evening after he drove his Dodge Neon into the side of a man who was driving his wheelchair in a crosswalk on Appleton Street at South Street at 7:23 p.m.
A police cruiser was parked nearby when the collision occurred between a 23-year-old Lowell man’s Dodge Neon and a 43-year-old Lowell man who was crossing Appleton Street in his wheelchair.
A witness said the impact nearly knocked the wheelchair over, but that the 43-year-old was able to shift his weight and stay on his wheels. The man in the wheelchair, pictured above at right, was taken to Saints Medical Center with minor injuries.
