Man in wheelchair dies after being struck by car

A man in a wheelchair died late Saturday after he was struck by a car traveling on W. Sugar Creek Road.

Authorities withheld the victim’s name pending notification of family members.

According to CMPD, the incident happened sometime around 11:20 p.m. in the 600 block of W. Sugar Creek Rd., near Argyle Drive.

Police said the victim was in the roadway when he was stuck by a 2007 Toyota Corolla driven by a 44-year-old woman. The Toyota stopped and was then struck by a second car.

The man died shortly after reaching a hospital. Investigators said he was not using a designated crosswalk.

No one in either car was injured, and CMPD said neither speed nor alcohol was a factor in the crash.
