A man who fell from an e-scooter on a busy city road has died from his injuries. Police and ambulance crews were called to the incident in Carlton Road, at its junction with Seymour Street, on the St Ann's and Sneinton border, at around 8pm on Thursday, May 23.

The man, who was in his 40s, sustained a head injury and died 24 hours later at the Queen's Medical Centre. Officers are continuing to investigate what caused the man to fall from the e-scooter and have asked witnesses or anyone with dash cam footage to come forward.

Police do not believe that any other vehicle was in collision with the e-scooter. Detective Constable Liah Lane, of Nottinghamshire Police’s serious collision investigation unit, said: “This was a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the man’s family at this extremely difficult time. We are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward. If you saw what happened and have yet to get in contact with us, please do not assume that others have already told us what you saw.

“We are working to build up a complete picture of what happened. Whilst we do not believe the e-scooter was involved in a collision with another vehicle, we are keen to review any dashcam footage recorded by passing vehicles around the time of the incident.

“I would also like to thank the members of the public who came to the injured man’s aid and stayed with him until emergency services arrived. This was a distressing incident for everyone involved and they acquitted themselves admirably in a difficult situation.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to call 101 quoting incident 641 of May 23, 2024.

It comes after the family of Mohit Singraur, who died following a separate e-scooter crash in Aspley last month, urged riders to follow the safety recommendations.
