BALTIMORE — A wounded Baltimore Police sergeant's life was made a little easier on Tuesday, after a group of local organizations teamed up to donate a handicap accessible van.
It was August 2019, when Isaac Carrington was off-duty talking to a neighbor outside his home on Summerfield Avenue.
Two gunmen pulled up and tried robbing him. Carrington resisted and was shot, leaving him wheelchair bound.
The 2019 Toyota Sienna van customized by Bedco Mobility is valued at $70,000, and was made possible by MileOne's Wheels for Change, the Signal 13 Foundation and Baltimore City's Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3.
“With the donation of this accessible van, I can now look forward to recovery,” said Carrington. “This generous gift of mobility makes it possible for me to get my life back together and move forward. I am very thankful for all the support.”
