SACRAMENTO - A young Sacramento boy in a wheelchair whose family needs reliable transportation for him is a step closer to getting new wheels.
Ten-year-old Aaron Negrete was born without arms or legs. His current transportation is an older van that frequently breaks down.
As part of Mobility Awareness Month, the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association is giving away four new vans to local heroes in a national contest.
More than 4 million votes for the nominees were cast. Aaron was named a semi-finalist after being in the top 10 percent of vote-getters. Voting ended May 9.
The four finalists will be notified by May 30.
