50 MPH wheelchair ride!?!?

What a ride for this guy!

That is a truly, truly bizarre story.

“‘The man spilled his soda pop, but he wasn’t upset,’ said Sgt. Kathy Morton of the Michigan State Police.”

I guess we can assume he has a seriously well-built chair!

I don’t mean to be unkind, but the guy looks like Andy from Little Britain.


Does he at least own the wheelchair record now? Maybe longest distance in shortest time?

Talk about a story for his grandkids / kids / coworkers / potential dates! :smiley:

Somebody buy the guy a coke, please!

I chuckled just thinking about the trucker’s reaction.

“Sir, did you realize there is a man on a wheelchair on your front grill”

“A who on a what on the where now?”

Talk about riding the front seat of the roller coaster. Makes me wonder about his mental state if, after several miles at 50 mph stuck to the grill of a truck, the main thing bothering him was his soda. Either that or he uses the wheelchair to help support some big ol’ honkin’ brass balls the size of basketballs :slight_smile:

I just have to say that from what I’ve read, the guy in the chair gets some major points for staying amazingly cool and zen during and after an extremely fscked up situation.
