      Wareham Police investigation

      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 faces 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.
