Wrong-way scooter rider hit by driver in Highland neighborhood dies

DENVER — A wrong-way rider on a scooter who was hit by a driver in the Highland neighborhood more than a week ago has died, the Denver Police Department said Monday.

It’s the first time a rider on a stand-up rental scooter has died in Denver in the year-plus since the motorized vehicles were introduced into the city.

The crash happened about 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 4 in the 2800 block of West 32nd Avenue near Federal Boulevard.

Police said the rider, identified in a police report as 26-year-old Cameron Hagan of Billings, Montana, was going eastbound in the westbound lane of West 32nd Avenue approaching North Eliot Street.

When Hagan attempted to cross the street, he went in front of the vehicle driven by a 27-year-old woman that was going westbound.

Hagan was ejected from the scooter and landed on the south curb line, according to the police report.

He was taken to a hospital with serious bodily injuries. He died Friday night, but police did not announce it until Monday morning.

Police said it was not a hit-and-run crash no one is being charged in the crash.

The name of the driver was not released.
