Man in Wheelchair Hit, Dragged by Garbage Truck in SoHo

A man crossing a SoHo street in a wheelchair was hit by a garbage truck, knocked out of his chair and dragged Friday morning.

He was in stable condition at the hospital, officials said.

The 66-year-old man was crossing West Broadway at Spring Street when he was struck.

Authorities say the truck was stopped at a red light and began to move when the light turned green. The driver may not have seen the man.

Rescuers worked for several minutes to free the man from beneath the truck.

Police said no charges would be filed.
