(NECN) - A disabled teenager's specialized tricycle has been found damaged beyond repair.
The $7,000 tricycle had been custom-made 17-year-old Wayne Thompson from Rhode Island, who has a brain condition, scoliosis and other ailments that prevent him from riding a traditional bicycle.
A fundraising website has been set up to help replace the tricycle.
The site has already raised nearly $5,000.
