Scooter and BMW collision at Fort and Douglas streets sends one man to hospital

Police have taped off the intersection and are interviewing witnesses

One man has been sent to hospital with non life-threatening injuries after a collision between a Mercedes and a scooter Monday afternoon just after noon.

VicPD are investigating the incident, and the intersection of Fort and Douglas streets has been closed off and is surrounded by police tape.

Witnesses said the bike was travelling north on Douglas when the southbound black Mercedes made a left turn on to Fort and the vehicles collided. The scooter’s rider, who appeared to be in his 60s or older, flew off his bike upon impact. He was seen clutching his leg and was taken to hospital. Witness who spoke to the News were unsure whether one or both vehicles may have run a light.

A crowd gathered around the injured man in the busy intersection after the incident.

More to come.
