Man Knocked From Scooter Chair, Ticketed

WATERBURY, Conn., (UPI) — A 76-year-old Connecticut man who was knocked from his scooter chair when it was struck by a car was ticketed by police.

Police said Thomas Galvin was driving his motorized chair north in the southbound lane of Thomaston Avenue in Waterbury about 4 p.m. Tuesday when he was struck by a 1992 Ford Crown Victoria exiting a gas station, the Waterbury Republican American reported Wednesday.

An ambulance took Galvin to Saint Mary’s Hospital, where he was treated for non-serious injuries.

Galvin was issued citations for improper operation of a motor-driven cycle on the roadway and violation of a permit provision. Police said Galvin does not have a medical prescription for the chair.

The driver of the Ford, who remained at the scene until police arrived, was not ticketed.

      45 caliber, the mental condition of this administration will eventually require that all Amerikans have a prescription for EVERYTHING, including prescriptions, food, water, permission to go outside and – especially – permission to go to an MD. Put NOTHING past these utopian retards, 45 caliber.
      They are classic, textbook anal retentive power junkies, and they will do ANYTHING to GET and KEEP POWER. Do NOT doubt it.
