Rules of the Road for Motorized Wheelchair Users | Wheelchair Accidents and Injuries

Motorized wheelchair users in West Virginia have responsibilities, rights, and privileges similar to those of pedestrians. These conveyances can be legally operated on public sidewalks, park pathways, bicycle paths, rail trails, and in public buildings. While motorized wheelchairs (which are also referred to as motorized scooters or mobility scooters) should not be on public roads if there are any other options, they are allowed to cross at intersections just as pedestrians. They should only be operated on a roadway if there is no sidewalk, or the sidewalk is obstructed in a way that prevents safe use.

Police say a 53-year-old woman was driving with her 28-year-old son in the passenger seat northbound on Route 10 when the vehicle crossed over the centerline and collided head-on with a pickup truck traveling in the opposite direction.
