Hope the city Starts getting sued over this. Maybe This should be outlawed , these moped they come flying out of all directions, no respect for the street saftey laws. Most drivers are immigrants who don’t drive cars they have no idea what they’re doing

Kill yourself by falling off a scooter! He was probably riding it unsafely. Most people, children and adults aren’t safe on those monstrosities.

How do they know he fell from his scooter? Maybe he was attacked by someone with a dark complexion at 11pm.
