Earlier this month, an Allentown resident was tragically hit by two motor vehicles while riding on an electric scooter. The first car struck the man as he was riding along, which sent him flying into traffic. A United States Postal Service truck then hit the man again.
Sadly, this is not the first case of a serious accident on an electric scooter. As electric scooters have started gaining popularity in around 100 cities across the country, emergency rooms have felt the effect. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently found that scooters may be far more dangerous than they realized.
