A 21-year-old man was hospitalized Thursday evening with life threatening injuries suffered when he was run over by an SUV in the University City area of San Diego.
The victim was riding a Razor scooter diagonally across the intersection of Regents Road and Porte De Merano about 7:20 p.m. when the 52-year-old driver of a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe going southbound on Regents Road made a U-turn and ran over the 21-year-old man.
The street is a dead end and the U- turn was legal, according to Officer John Buttle of the San Diego Police Department.
The rider sustained serious injuries, including a lacerated liver, collapsed lung and spinal fracture, Buttle said.
Alcohol and drugs were not a factor and there was no immediate report the driver was arrested.
