WICHITA, Kan. — A Wichita prison minister is in an induced coma after being hit by a pickup truck while riding his moped.
Raymond Clay, 60, just bought his new moped one hour before the accident Tuesday morning. He bought a new one, because his last moped had recently been stolen.
Friends gathered at Matt & Julie's Diner to pray. Clay would meet them for coffee everyday at the restaurant.
Clay is a minister at the El Dorado Correctional Facility.
A man was rushed to a Wichita hospital in critical condition after his moped collided with a truck in southwest Wichita.
The crash happened shortly before 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 2200 block of South Seneca, north of Pawnee. Wichita Police said a moped was southbound when it was hit by a northbound pickup truck that turned left in front of it.
The moped's driver, a man in his 60s, was rushed to a Wichita hospital in critical condition. Police said the man was not wearing a helmet, and had struck his head on the truck and the pavement.
The driver of the truck had been turning left into a fast food restaurant, and told officers he didn't see the moped.
Police are investigating.
