One Hurt in San Diego Scooter Incident
SAN DIEGO, CA (April 25, 2019) – A 46-year-old woman sustained a fractured femur after an electric scooter crash in San Diego on Tuesday, April 23.
According to San Diego police Officer John Buttle, the incident occurred at about 12:40 a.m. on Pacific Highway just south of Witherby Street and 5 Freeway.
The woman rode an electric scooter northbound on Pacific Highway when she glanced down at her cell phone’s GPS map. She then lost control of the scooter and crashed in the Mission Hills area, the officer said.
Emergency responders transported the woman to a hospital for treatment of a fractured femur. Her condition is not believed to be life-threatening, Buttle stated.
Authorities ruled out intoxication as a factor in the crash, Buttle said.
