City Councilman, Tariq Bokhari, witnessed Charlotte’s first major scooter wreck yesterday afternoon at the corner of South Brevard and East 4th Street.
A woman was riding a scooter the wrong way down a one-way street and hit a van head on.
Tariq Bokhari posted an update on his Facebook page, “I followed up on the young lady I saw in the scooter accident with CMPD (thankfully she survived), and here’s what I learned: She was transported to CMC none life threatening leg injury. Numerous witnesses say she was going wrong way through red light up Brevard. She claimed scooter brakes were defective. Officers inspected scooter and all checked out fine from operational standpoint.”
Bokhari told WCNC, “You can’t regulate stupidity, and unfortunately, I think that was a case today of stupidity.”
