A 48-year-old male was riding a Lime scooter southbound in the 3300 block of Ocean Front Walk at 2:30 p.m. on June 23. He was with a 22-year-old female friend who was also riding a scooter. They were adjacent to each other when for an unknown reason their bodies collided and they both lost control.

They were both ejected from their scooters and contacted the boardwalk. The female sustained abrasions to her lower legs. The male sustained abrasions to his lower legs and had a complaint of pain in his chest. The male was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

No DUI. The Medical Examiner will determine cause of death. San Diego Police Traffic Division is investigating. Anyone with information related to the incident is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.

I thought electric scooters were banned from being used on sidewalks/boardwalks in San Diego? It's a shame that individuals in San Diego willingly continue to choose to put their lives at risk as well as the safety of innocent pedestrians when using electric scooters.
