HCA Midwest Health Emergency Rooms have experienced a 20% increase in ER visits due to injuries from electronic scooters.

"We do see breaks," said Dr. James Cusser. "We do see strains, sprains. We are also seeing concussions. We're seeing closed injuries with traumatic brain injuries as well." The bottom line, wear protective gear, be aware of your surroundings, and put your devices away. No "ride" is worth a ride to the emergency room.
