Emergency personnel tend to a pedestrian

Emergency personnel tend to a pedestrian on a motorized wheelchair that was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of North 29th and 6th Avenue North on Tuesday. One witness said the person was dragged along for a short distance by the vehicle.

A man in a motorized wheelchair was hit by a sport utility vehicle in downtown Billings on Tuesday morning.

Billings Police Department Lt. Mark Cady said the man was crossing Sixth Avenue North on North 29th Street when a Lexus SUV turned onto Sixth from 29th and struck the man shortly before 11 a.m.

Shortly after the accident, the man could be seen lying face-down in the northbound on the northernmost lane of Sixth and appeared to be unconscious.

After a medical crew loaded the man into an ambulance and took him to a Billings hospital, Cady said that his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
