Rider Hurt in San Diego Scooter Collision
SAN DIEGO, CA (March 4, 2019) – A man suffered a fractured leg late Saturday when his scooter collided with a pickup truck at Rosecrans and Hancock streets.
Paramedics arrived and transported the 46-year-old victim to an area hospital. According to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department, the scooter rider suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Around 10:25 p.m., the man was riding his 2016 Lance scooter southbound in the 3800 block Rosecrans Street. During this time, a 2002 Ford pickup truck heading north on Rosecrans Street struck the scooter rider as the rider transitioned to the left lane to head westbound on Hancock Street.
