A 38-year-old man was injured in an accident in which the scooter he was riding on collided with a car sending him crashing into its windshield and flying 20 feet in the air, according to reports.
Miraculously, the 38-year-old man and friend suffered only minor injuries and have been released from a hospital. He will require physical therapy.
The 38-year-old had just left his hotel and was riding the scooter when a Mercedes driven by a local man near Indian River County ran into him, according to FHP.
Indian River County Police reported that the car failed to stop at a turn and slammed into the 38-year-old man’s scooter.
The 38-year-old, who was doing 60 mph at the time of the accident, catapulted 20 feet over the car after shattering its windshield with his helmet, which also was busted, sources with direct knowledge of the crash told FHP. The motorist stopped and called for help.
He was taken by ambulance to the hospital with a “slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm,” according to the Indian County local newspaper. A scan showed that none of his bones had been fractured.
