Electric scooter crash: woman's death after lorry collision believed to be first of its kind in UK


A woman who was hit by a lorry while riding an electric scooter has died in what is thought to be the first UK incident of its kind.

The victim, in her 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene in Battersea, south-west London this morning.

The crash happened at Queen’s Circus roundabout shortly after 8.30am, a spokesperson from the Metropolitan Police said.

No arrests have been made.

A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “We sent an advanced paramedic, two ambulance crews, an incident response officer and two medics in cars to the scene, with the first of our medics arriving in under four minutes.

“Sadly, despite the extensive efforts of medics, a woman died at the scene.”

Several roads were closed while the scene was investigated, including Chelsea Bridge and Nine Elms Lane.
