A 26-year-old electric scooter rider is in critical condition after being struck by an SUV in Nashville on Thursday night.
Brady Gaulke was struck by a Nissan Pathfinder at the intersection of Demonbreun Street and 14th Avenue South when he made an improper turn, police said.
He was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was said to be fighting for his life..
The incident comes just after the Chattanooga City Council decided not to approve scooters after earlier voting narrowly in favor on first reading.
Nashville is experimenting with the scooters through next April.
Seven scooter firms have been approved and they are allowed to have up to 1,000 scooters each.
The small vehicles are required to follow the same traffic rules as cars.
