ROSEVILLE (CBS13) – A 65-year-old Roseville resident is fighting for his life after he was hit by a car while crossing the street in his motorized wheelchair.

Dee Dee Gunther with the Roseville Police Department said that the incident happened just after 5 p.m. Sunday near Washington Boulevard and Pleasant Street. The man was crossing the street at the cross walk when a 1999 Nissan Pathfinder driven by a 53-year-old Roseville man hit him.

The man in the wheelchair was taken to the hospital and is said to be suffering from life-threatening injuries.

Investigators do not believe that drugs or alcohol played a factor in the crash.

Washington Boulevard, between Elefa and Grove Street, will be closed for most of the night as investigators continue to examine the scene, Gunther said.
