Two Men Crash on Electric Scooters Near Buca di Beppo Downtown

Two men riding electric scooters crashed near a Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant downtown Sunday night.

A 43-year-old was using a Bird scooter on G Street when a 48-year-old crashed into him just after 6 p.m., according to the San Diego Police Department.

Police said the younger man slowed down, but the older man was following at an unsafe distance and was unable to avoid him.

The 48-year-old fell onto the roadway, fracturing his left arm, SDPD said. He was taken to a nearby hospital shortly after.

The older man had been drinking, but police said no DUI.

This comes less than two days after a 65-year-old woman fractured her leg while also riding a Bird scooter downtown.

SDPD Traffic Division is investigating.
