An accident involving a vehicle and a wheelchair occurred Tuesday evening, however, no injuries were sustained as a result of the incident, according to Liberal Police Capt. Pat McClurg.
The accident took place at 6:15 p.m. at Larrabee and Second Street, McClurg said.
“A man in a wheelchair was struck by a vehicle,” he explained. “It was first reported as an injury accident.”
McClurg said a 53-year-old man driving a 2003 Buick Century was travelling south when he struck a 43-year-old male travelling north in the southbound lane – he was in his wheelchair.
“The driver of the Buick swerved and kind of clipped him with his mirror,” McClurg said. “He was taken to Southwest Medical Center by EMS for precautionary measures and was released.”
