SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — A 21-year-old Sacramento resident died early Saturday when he was struck by a car while riding an electric scooter on Business 80. 

The California Highway Patrol says officers reported to the scene 3:04 a.m. When they arrived, they learned a Nissan Altima was driving northbound on Business 80 when they saw a “figure” in front of them. 

The driver crashed into it and pulled over once they realized they had hit a person, CHP says. They then called 911. 

According to the CHP, the man on the scooter died at the scene. 

CHP later learned that law enforcement had received a report of someone riding an electric scooter on Business 80 near the American River Bridge just moments before the fatal crash. 

The crash is still under investigation.
