MONROE — A young man in a wheelchair was hit by a car on Monday afternoon while he was trying to cross the street.

Medics rushed to the intersection of W. Main and N. Kelsey streets about 3:20 p.m., Snohomish County Fire District 3 spokeswoman Richelle Risdon said.

The Monroe man, 19, suffered minor injuries, Monroe police spokeswoman Debbie Willis said. Medics drove him to Valley General Hospital.

There is no traffic light at the intersection. The man was in an unmarked crossing, Willis said.
