Driver Hits Woman On Scooter While Backing Out Of Driveway

Your folks always reminded to look at both side mirrors, and triple-check your rearview mirror when backing up. A Fond du Lac woman is probably wishing she would have paid more attention to those gentle reminders, as she backed out of her driveway located on E. Johnson St., just before 5:45 p.m. Saturday. The 27-year old female driver of the vehicle told Fond du Lac Police she never saw the victim, a 60-year old woman who, at the time, was operating an electric wheelchair down the sidewalk. The operator of the wheel chair tipped over and complained of pain to her hip, but refused transportation to the hospital. There was damage to the wheelchair, but no further details were made available.
