Vehicle vs Pedestrian Accident
On 12/01/2017 at about 9:15 a.m. the Sparks Police, Sparks Fire Department, and Remsa responded to the area of south bound Vista at Disc, for an accident. Multiple witnesses called the Sparks Communication center to report a large pick up truck had struck a subject in a motorized wheelchair. The truck was pulling onto south bound Vista from a parking lot. The subject in the wheelchair was raveling northbound Vista, crossing the parking lot exit. The driver of the truck did not see the subject in the wheelchair, as the driver pulled out onto Vista. The truck struck the wheelchair, causing the rider to be ejected out of the chair, and the wheelchair got stuck under the truck. The subject in the wheelchair was transported to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
The names of the involved parties are not being released at this time. Neither party was cited.
