FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — A 20-year-old woman has died after the scooter she was riding in was rear ended by a Hummer in southwest Florida.
Lee County Sheriff's officials said Steven Mitchell was driving the scooter, along with his passenger Karen Cagle on Saturday night when they were struck by the SUV. The Hummer dragged the scooter for a bit until both vehicles stopped. Mitchell and Cagle were both ejected from the scooter.
Cagle was pronounced dead at the scene. Mitchell was taken to the hospital. His condition is not known.
