A man has serious injuries after police say a car hit his wheelchair near 21st and Sheridan. Officers say Sunday evening, the 65-year-old man drove his motorized wheelchair into oncoming traffic in a dark area.

They say the driver who hit him was going the speed limit but didn't see the wheelchair in time. Investigators say the victim's injuries are life-threatening.

There's no word on any charges for the driver. Police say they've worked several wheelchair-related crashes in the area because they say people don't want to go to the crosswalk a block away.
