Taken For a Ride

This is just one of those stories that you want to tell people about; when forces of the universe combine and wreak a bit of havoc. In what is hopefully only a freak occurrence, a young man got taken for a ride on the front of a truck when his wheelchair got stuck in the front grate of a big rig. The truck driver didn't notice that he was speeding down the highway with the wheelchair attached to the truck, and the boy seated in the wheelchair. He managed to drive for 4 miles before police were able to stop the truck.

It seems that initial reports of the situation were not taken seriously by police... although one can't blame them when you consider how the call probably sounded...

In any event, the young man was not hurt and he now has one heck of a story to tell!

But I dont get how he got stuck like that. Was he backing up and he backed up into the truck? Why didnt he yell when he heard the driver coming? How did he not fall out? Wow...quite a story.
