Fatal Hit-and-Run Scooter Accident Statistics

Aside from bikes and motorcycles, scooters are becoming increasingly popular as a third mode of transportation. They’re a great option because they’re easy to carry, inexpensive, and lightweight. Scootering down the road, on the other hand, is more hazardous for the rider.

According to a study published in JAMA Surgery, e-scooters are becoming more popular. Injuries, on the other hand, are on the rise. In 2014, an estimated 4,583 people were injured in e-scooter accidents. 2018 saw an increase in this number to 14,641. There was a 365% increase in the number of hospital visits as well. E-scooter accidents resulted in nearly 40,000 emergency room visits in the United States during that period.

The hit-and-run driver is responsible for leaving the victim injured and fleeing the scene in this case. When the suspect is arrested, they are likely to face criminal charges. In the United States, there were approximately 2,049 hit-and-run fatalities in 2016. About 682,000 hit-and-run accidents take place in the United States each year.
