Decorah driver hits 8-year-old boy in wheelchair

Posted: Updated:

An 8-year-old boy was thrown from his wheelchair after being hit by a driver in Decorah Wednesday afternoon, but did not need to be taken to the hospital.

The collision happened at the intersection of Winnebago Street and Broadway.  The accident report says 78-year-old Jenine Jordahl stopped at the Winnebago Street stop sign, and waited for kids to cross.  But Jordahl did not see the boy in wheelchair when she started driving again.

The impact threw 8-year-old Anders Lovstuen of Waukon from his motorized chair.  Lovstuen hit his forehead on the pavement.  Paramedics came to the scene, but Lovstuen was not taken to the hospital.
