    UPDATE: Scooter was at Fault in Vehicle Versus Scooter Incident Last Month

    WEHO TIMES reported on a vehicle-versus-scooter incident in West Hollywood last month, wherein an electric scooter rider was struck by a car at the intersection of Fountain Ave and Fairfax Ave. The incident took place on the northwest corner of the intersection on December 2, 2023, at approximately 4:30 p.m.

    A brief video clip depicted a person on the ground, appearing to be in pain, while a woman seemed to be calling for assistance from emergency responders. A Lime scooter was observed wedged underneath a Toyota vehicle.

    During a regular West Hollywood Public Safety Commission meeting on Monday, January 8, 2023, Sergeant Jason Duron reported that the traffic-related incident found the electric scooter driver at fault for illegally riding the scooter on the sidewalk. According to LASD WeHo, the scooter driver was also traveling on the wrong side of the street.

    Details on the extent of the scooter drivers injuries or the damage made to the vehicle are not yet known.
