Woman Flies Over Handlebars as E-Scooter Hits Gutter in Darwin

A woman riding an electric scooter took a tumble as she hit a gutter in Darwin, Australia, on April 3, sending her flying over the handlebars.

The moment was caught on CCTV by a local business owner, George Fisher who said this was not the first incident involving an e-scooter at that location.

“The corner in the video is notorious for an outbreak of e-scooter accidents,” Fisher told Storyful.

The incident also follows reports of concern among doctors that people were regularly showing up at Darwin hospitals with serious injuries sustained in e-scooter crashes, and were increasing pressure on emergency departments. Credit: George Fisher via Storyful
