San Diego police are investigating the death of a 51-year-old man in a wheelchair who was allegedly run over by the driver of a church ministry van Saturday evening.
According to authorities, the 60-year-old driver, who was on West Point Loma Boulevard, was turning right against a red light onto Midway shortly after 9pm when he struck the wheelchair-bound man, who had been crossing West Point Loma Boulevard.
Police say the driver had made a full stop at the red light before attempting the turn, but apparently did not see the man in the wheelchair.
It is unclear what charges, if any, the driver may face. Police confirm that neither drugs nor alcohol played a role in the accident.
The victim, whose identity has not been released, was a patient at a nearby convalescent hospital, according to hospital employees.
The van, which belongs to Sam Kholi Ministries, had "Jesus Christ is Lord" written on its side.
Police say the road closure at the intersection of Sports Arena Blvd, West Point Loma Blvd. and Midway will continue until midnight Saturday while they wrap up their investigation, and should be re-opened early Sunday morning.
