    Enjoy this one.

    PAW PAW, Michigan (AP) -- A man was taken on a wild ride when his wheelchair became lodged in the grille of a semitrailer and was accidentally pushed down a highway for four miles at about 50 mph, authorities said.

    The 21-year-old man, whose name was not released, was unharmed but was taken to a hospital as a precaution. He had been secured to his wheelchair by a seat belt.

    "The man spilled his soda pop, but he wasn't upset," said Sgt. Kathy Morton of the Michigan State Police.

    About 4 p.m. Wednesday, a caller told police dispatchers, "You are not going to believe this: There is a semi truck pushing a guy in a wheelchair on Red Arrow Highway," state police said in a release.

    Authorities initially wondered whether the report was a prank call until others called with similar reports.

    Officers stopped the truck -- wheelchair still attached -- at a trucking company. The driver didn't believe officers until he stepped from his cab and saw for himself.

    "When he saw us, he was like, 'What's going on?' " Morton said.

    An investigation revealed the man in the wheelchair had pulled in front of the truck at a gas station, and it somehow became lodged by its handles to the front grille.

    :shock:

    No need to get upset about a little spilled soda. I'm sure he needed to change his pants afterwards anyway! :lol:

    Looks like he is in the zone, ready for his race. I can see him mentally preparing himself to break the landspeed record in a wheel chair. "I am speed, I am fast, I am spilling my coke, but I am fast." :rotfl:

    4 miles at 50 mph is 12 minutes and 30 seconds.

    Nice response time. :roll:
