December 17, 2011- A hit-and-run accident leaves a man in a wheelchair dead, in Fresno, Saturday, at about 7:45 PM.
The wheelchair bound man was crossing Blackstone Avenue, between Sierra and Herndon. He was not in a crosswalk while crossing, and it is reported that the lights in that part of the street were not clearly lit.
The man was struck by one vehicle, that has been described as a dark colored compact car. The man was thrown from his wheelchair after the first car hit him, and was struck by another vehicle, that could be a tan-colored Chevy Tahoe SUV.
Both drivers did not stop after hitting the man. They now face charges of felony hit-and-run, even though the man in the wheelchair was at fault.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
