The scooter was travelling southbound on the sidewalk at the time. The driver of the truck did not see the scooter and proceeded to head into the roadway when traffic was clear to do so, striking the scooter and dragging it a few feet into the roadway.
The scooter operator, a 65-year-old Marysville man sustained lacerations and bruises to his left arm and leg. He was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation and treatment.
