Man in wheelchair slows traffic

Traffic was slowed Tuesday afternoon on southbound I-43 in Glendale when motorists spotted a man traveling on the shoulder in a motorized wheelchair, the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department reported.

The man, 73, told a sheriff's deputy he was on his way to a doctor's appointment and his transportation service never arrived. The man had entered the interstate at Good Hope Road, continuing along the shoulder at about 6 mph. The sheriff's deputy escorted the man to the exit ramp at W. Silver Spring Drive and issued the man a warning.

Interviewed later by WTMJ-TV (Channel 4), the man, who identified himself as Thomas Williams Jr. of Milwaukee, said he had ended up on I-43 after taking a wrong turn.

"I just thought it was a good way to get home, I didn't know I was on the interstate. No," said Williams, who demonstrated how he used a hand mirror to observe approaching motor traffic.

Williams said he assured the sheriff's deputy that he wouldn't venture onto the freeway again. "I'm not getting back on the freeway. No, no, because I don't want to go to jail."
