Authorities in Waterbury, Conn., ticketed a 76-year-old man who they said was knocked off his mobility scooter by a passing car.

Police told the Waterbury Republican American that Thomas Galvin was driving his powered chair on an area roadway when he was struck by a 1992 Ford Crown Victoria that was exiting a gas station.

According to the publication, Galvin was taken to an area hospital and treated for non-serious injuries.

However, police issued Galvin citations for improper operation of a motor-driven cycle on a roadway and violation of a permit provision — the latter citation came after officers determined that he does not have a medical prescription for the chair.

The newspaper reported that the driver of the car was not cited in the crash.
