ST. LOUIS (AP) – Authorities say a 25-year-old man has died after he apparently crashed an electric Lime scooter into a tree in St. Louis.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the man was in cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived Saturday night. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

St. Louis Fire Department Capt. Leon Whitener says it’s not clear whether the man crashed after he suffered a cardiac arrest or if the cardiac arrest was triggered by the crash.

Lime scooters can reach a speed of up to 15 miles per hour on a flat roadway. Customers are informed when they rent a scooter that a helmet is required, that sidewalk riding isn’t allowed and to obey all traffic laws.
