Local man goes for the ride of his life

‘The Michigan State Police Paw Paw Post and Van Buren County Central Dispatch began receiving strange reports of a man in a wheel chair being pushed by a semi truck on Wednesday afternoon.

The wheel chair of a 21-year-old man became lodged in the grill of a semi truck as the vehicle pulled out of a gas station. The semi then began driving down Red Arrow Highway, with its new and unusual hood ornament still attached.

Police initially thought the report might have been a prank until they started receiving more reports of the situation.

Troopers responded to the Ralph Moyle Trucking Company, located on Red Arrow Highway, where it was reported the semi truck had pulled in — wheel chair and occupant still attached.

Troopers and officers discovered the man in the wheel chair, unharmed.’
