A Monroe County man was taken to a Macon hospital Tuesday after he pulled his motorized wheelchair into the path of a vehicle on U.S. 41, according to the sheriffs office.
Jesse Foust, 59, was riding his wheelchair on the roads shoulder, close to the pavement, about 1 p.m. when a vehicle approached from behind and slowed down, Allison Willis, public information officer for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, said.
At the moment the vehicle was going past him, (Foust) came across a limb, and he pulled into the vehicles path, Willis said. The wheelchair struck the vehicles mirror and flipped over.
Foust, who lives in the Whispering Pines Personal Care Home, was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia in Macon. Tuesday night, the hospital would only say Foust was in stable condition.
Willis said no charges are expected in the case.
