In what seems to be a rash of accidents involving pedestrians in Hillcrest last week, another one was reported over the weekend, this time involving a man on an electric scooter.

It happened at approximately 7:30 pm Saturday, August 5, on the 1000 block of University at Vermont says James McDermott

He tells San Diego Gay and Lesbian News that he saw only the aftermath of the collision as he drove across University on Vermont on his way to Ralphs supermarket.

Police and emergency vehicles arrived moments after the accident he adds. 

"The victim suffered minor injuries and was transported to Mercy," says San Diego Police Officer Billy Hernandez,  "The other party involved remained on scene and it’s unknown if he was cited."
