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.

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