FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Shannon Rabbitt said she stopped at a red light on Wednesday on Webster Street and Jefferson Boulevard when she said a rider hit the right side of her car and rode off.
"I know there's been scooters hit by cars, but as far as a scooter hitting a car and taking off? No," Rabbitt explained.
She knew it wasn't good when she heard it. She expected to see some damage on the bottom of her door, but the impact was worse than she thought.
"It happened so fast. The next thing I know is the scooter person was on the ground. and then he got back up. Got out of my car saw the damage and that these weren't coming out, and realized it was done by the scooter," she added.
Rabbitt said the damage is estimated at more than $1,200.
She had little information to provide to Fort Wayne police, but she filed a report anyway.
Sgt. Sofia Rosales-Scatena said everyone has to be mindful when sharing the road and sidewalks to prevent incidents like this one.
"Just keep an eye out. As for scooter riders, there are people on the sidewalks. Use a little bit of care and caution for that. Make sure you're clearing buildings and doors. We've had a couple of incidents where people have people walk out and almost get hit by scooters, so if everyone just keeps and eye out for everyone. We should be ok," Sgt. Sofia Rosales-Scatena said.
