A man was transported to St. Mary's hospital after his wheelchair collided with a van on Orchard Mesa.

Police say the man was crossing over Highway 50 in his wheelchair when a white van traveling westbound on the road hit him near the intersection of highway 50 and 27 road.

He was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries, but officers on scene say he was conscious and breathing when the ambulance drove off.

Officers say they have not issued any citations at this point, because they are still investigating conflicting stories from the people involved
