WAREHAM, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts driver has been charged with running over a 24-year-old man in a wheelchair, killing him.

Wareham police say a car driven by 28-year-old John Vandeusen of Middleboro hit the wheelchair shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday.

The injured victim, Joshua Macro of Onset, was taken to Tobey Hospital in Wareham, where he died.

Police say Vandeusen face charges of motor vehicle homicide, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and failure to stay in marked lanes.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at Wareham District Court.

It was not immediately clear if he has legal representation.
