A Knoxville man died last week after he was hit by a sports utility vehicle. The 68-year-old man had just come off the sidewalk, riding in his motorized wheelchair. As he entered onto Forest Glen Drive in West Knoxville, the driver of the SUV hit him, knocking the man out of his wheelchair. He was taken to UT Medical Center where he died from his injuries.
The driver of the SUV is an 18-year-old from Knoxville. No charges have been filed against him but police are still investigating the fatal crash. Knoxville police officials said they are investigating now in order to determine if they will file any charges.
