E-bike involved in collision (3 photos)

Monday, August 11, 2014   by: Kenneth Armstrong

Sault Ste. Marie Police Service officers investigated a collision Monday afternoon involving an electric scooter, commonly known as an e-bike.

According to witnesses the e-bike apparently lost control and collided with a car that was parked on a front lawn on Wellington Street near Simpson Street.

It is unclear if the e-bike was riding on the street or the sidewalk at the time of the collision.

The driver of the e-bike was sent to hospital with unknown injuries, no one else was injured in the collision.

According to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation website, e-bikes can look like bicycles, scooters or even a small motorcycle and are allowed on city streets and anywhere a traditional bicycle is allowed.
