A driver struck a student in a wheelchair on Summit Road at the intersection of Janik Drive Thursday.

The student, Ahmet Cunmulaj, sustained no major injuries during the accident, other than a bruise on his arm and broken glasses.

Cunmulaj was crossing Janik when the driver pulled out to turn right onto Summit.

Cunmulaj said he did not want to press charges on the driver, just replace his broken glasses.

?“It’s all right,” he said. “As long as I get new glasses, I’ll be happy.”
