Man in wheelchair struck by car dies

The man who was struck by a car while crossing a Whitewater street in his motorized wheelchair died from his injuries Tuesday.

Officials said Michael Chaloupka, 23, a recent UW-Whitewater graduate originally from Waukesha, died Tuesday at University Hospital in Madison.

He was crossing Main Street at Whiton Street in the crosswalk about 4:30 p.m. Aug. 28 when he was struck.

The driver was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian at an uncontrolled intersection. Her view may have been blocked by another car before the accident, police say.
