SAN DIEGO, CA (September 15, 2020) – Sunday night, a 36-year-old electric scooter rider suffered injuries in a crash on Byron Street.
The incident occurred about 10:40 p.m. on Byron Street and Rosecrans Street, San Diego Police Officer John Buttle revealed.
The authorities found out that the intoxicated man rode an electric scooter westbound on Byron Street. However, as he failed to yield at a red light, he went into the path of a 20-year-old woman driving a southbound Volvo SUV.
Responders transported the victim to a hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries. According to officers, he suffered a brain bleed and multiple facial fractures.
