Wheelchair users face greater danger in collisions with cars

People in Minnesota and throughout the country who are in wheelchairs are more likely than other pedestrians to die after being hit by a car, according to a recent study. Researchers at Georgetown University looked at reports of car accidents in the LexisNexis database and data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and found that wheelchair users were 36 percent more likely to die in collisions. The data was from the years 2006 to 2012, and about 528 wheelchair users died in that time.
