Local Paralyzed Vet Wins Vehicle

A local paralyzed veteran got the keys to a very special gift today.

John Scott of Omaha is the recipient of a brand new Braunability wheelchair van.

The adapted Toyota Sienna allows Scott to roll up on a side ramp, and transfer into the driver's seat.

Scott is one of just three national winners of the “Love Your Car” program sponsored by Pennzoil and the Paralyzed Veterans of America.

Votes from friends put him over the top.

Scott said he’s excited, especially since his current car has been failing.

“It's pretty overwhelming,’ he said, “and really humbling that I got enough votes nationally to win one of those three vehicles”

Thursday’s presentation was held at Heartland Mobility, which offers wheelchair accessible vehicles in Omaha.
