The incident happened near the intersection of Northwest 7th Avenue and 103rd Street, Miami-Dade Police officials said.
Footage showed the victim's damaged wheelchair on the side of the road, closed off by yellow crime scene tape.
The victim, whose identity wasn't released, was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

Police said the driver of the tractor-trailer left the scene but detectives know the vehicle they're looking for.
The driver apparently had the right of way but that the man in the wheelchair lost control and was side-swiped by the 18-wheeler.
Police said chances are low that the driver even realized he had hit anything.
The truck was described as having a white tractor and a yellow container, with the letters MSC on it.
The victim's wife was at the scene and asked for the driver to return and speak with police.
"Please come forward, I'm not gonna press charges or nothing, I just want you to come forward, show your face," Marta Rojas said. "Be a man, be a woman."
The victim was out of surgery Tuesday night and is recovering.
