Police: Man in wheelchair struck, killed crossing street

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A Virginia man who was trying to cross a street in an electric wheelchair was killed when he was struck by a pickup truck over the weekend, police said.

A Chevrolet Silverado hit David W. Ford, 58, at an intersection in Norfolk around 5 p.m. Saturday, police said in a statement.
