    Post Semi takes wheelchair-bound man on 50 MPH ride

    Semi takes wheelchair-bound man on 50 MPH ride
    http://www.wzzm13.com/news/news_arti...?storyid=76184



    Paw Paw - A wheelchair-bound man went on the ride of his life Wednesday after visiting a gas station in Van Buren County.

    Calls began pouring in to the Paw Paw post of the Michigan State Police around 4:00 p.m. The first call came in with a woman telling dispatchers, "You are not going to believe this, there is a semi- truck pushing a guy in a wheel chair on Red Arrow Highway!"

    The truck was traveling westbound on Red Arrow Highway just outside the village of Paw Paw.

    Authorities responded to the call on Red Arrow Highway where the man and his wheelchair were still attached to the semi-truck.

    Troopers and officers found a 21-year-old man un-harmed as he sat in his wheelchair, its handles still lodged in the truck's front grill.

    Investigators say the semi truck owned by RMI had pulled out of a local gas station. The young man in the wheelchair some how pulled in front of the semi-truck, causing his wheelchair handles to become stuck in the front grill of the truck.

    Authorities say the semi-truck at times reached speeds of nearly 50 miles per hour for nearly four miles.

    The semi driver was in disbelief as troopers told him about the man on his front grill until he saw it for himself.

    Police say the 21-year-old man was un-harmed and unfazed by the incident. The young man was quoted as saying, "It was quite a ride."

    One trooper said, "You could work another 90 years in Law Enforcement and never see something like this. We're just glad no one was injured in this unusual incident."

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    That sounds like something that would happen around here, immediately following the words "Hold my beer and y'all watch this!"

    They left this part out:

    Apparently, troopers were able to track down the semi by following a trail of yellow fluid leading from out of the gas station parking lot and down the highway.

    The opinions expressed by this poster are wholly his own, and should never be construed to even remotely be in representation of his employer, its agencies or assigns. In fact, they probably fail to be in alignment with the opinions of any rational human being.

    This story made it into our local papers here in the UK. However I did read it first here on LEF!
