A 29-year old man may not survive injuries caused by the crash of his electric-scooter early Monday morning, the 10th of December.

The as-yet identified guy was riding a Lime scooter going eastbound on the south sidewalk of the 1200 block of Garnet Avenue. For unknown reasons,  around 2:20 a.m. he veered to the right and struck a building.

He was hospitalized with “serious head injuries which are believed to be life threatening, according to police. (There was no update Tuesday morning as t his condition.)

Police said he was not wearing a helmet and also believe alcohol was a factor in his crash. The crash is under investigation.

Scooters are everywhere these days — and nights — and they are unpredictable, fast and often driven erratically. People double up. They usually ride without helmets, in the middle of streets or three across; sometimes they are barefooted, sometimes they cradle a small dog as they zip along; sometimes they weave back and forth. They have headlights but no tail lights and I’m surprised reported scooter injuries are not more frequently deadly. There oughta be an enforced law.
