An elderly man in a wheelchair was clipped by a car in an Ocean Beach crosswalk on Tuesday, December 19, at around 11:00 a.m.

As the man crossed Voltaire Street at the Ebers Street intersection, a middle-aged blonde female motorist driving a dark, late-model domestic car came into contact with the man’s wheelchair.

The street corner where the accident occurred is directly in front of Ocean Beach Fire Station #15. Almost immediately after the incident, the fire truck and ambulance went into action. Several San Diego police cruisers blocked traffic and the man was attended to by medics.

According to Peter of Ebers Street Garage, the elderly man, wearing a bright yellow sweater, "was only tapped by the motorist," who stopped immediately. She was seen giving her statement to the police as the victim was loaded into an ambulance for a trip to the hospital for observation.

I don't have compassion for BREEDS of both human animals:

(this be somewhat, I said somewhat -- exceptional case of the 'blonde' female 'motorist.' As blonde females are the most negligible of all breeds, on the public roads. [no aexagg/no sic] ) We all know that tv progam/show producers, for years, have blonde females acting to be the most unintelligent characters of everyone within the tv show. THIS = Also A Fact Of Real Life, Of Motorists Driving On The Public Roads. As the USA family is born waround the television (tube version, originally) --- it must be that as blonde girls grew older, and watched their tv shows. The pattern grew, via followed, into the mindsets of those watching the tv programs.

I say all this as one on 2-wheels.

ALONG WITH TOO MANY WHEELCHAIRS, commuting themsleves in the bike lane. Rather than on the public sidewalk. As The bike lane be on the public road, and that: be in the way of bikes be in a danger zone for all

I DON'T HAVE ANY COMPASSION FORTHEM AT ALL ALL THOSE WHEELCHAILERS NARCI$$I$TICALLY SEEK FOR === COMPA$$ION FROM THE PUBLIC.

(add that from my observations, around San Diego cities):

The 'wheelchair' classified breed --- the great majority DO have the capability to walk. Wheelchairs are simply their luxury, government-paid, set-of-wheels. Those electric wheelchairs are a status over the mechanical wheelchairs. As I have even seen them walk out of their mechanical wheelchairs.

NOT their permanent, hence fiexed-position disability. As they highly misperceive to the public. Along with the media to carry-on.

I have yet to see one of a ELECTRIC Wheelchair pressed for ADW charges. From the citizen who press charges, against the wheelchailer threatening to run-down someone with his own wheelchair. As those devices are very heavy, and access VERY fast speed.. Which the 'idabled' enjoy so much of, 'cause they get no hassle.

Isn't there a dog tied to a tree somewhere you forgot to kick?
