An Acura and a Nissan Murano were going south on Beach Boulevard when the Acura came into contact with the Nissan. The Acura lost control and went up on the curb, crashing into the wheelchair-bound man, sheriff's Lt. Lane Lagaret said.

The man was carried about 50 feet on the hood of the Acura before it hit parked cars and came to a stop.

Drugs and alcohol were ruled out as factors in the accident.
