Evans says the man in the wheelchair pulled into a street crosswalk just after a fire truck began making a right-hand turn at the intersection of Central Expressway and Forest Lane.
The crash was very low-speed because the fire truck stopped almost immediately. “The driver had just taken his foot off the break when he realized the chair was in his path,” Evans explained. “It bumped and tilted the chair.
