Man in Hutt Hospital after suffering head injury in electric scooter accident

A man has suffered a serious head injury after falling from an electric scooter in Hutt Valley, Wellington, last night.

Emergency services attended the scene on Blenheim Street at about 8:20pm, police say.

The man is now in Hutt Hospital - neither police or ambulance staff have been able to confirm if it was a Lime Scooter, however the accident did coincide with yesterday's launch of Lime Scooters in the Wellington region.
