DENVER — A stand-up scooter rider was injured after a collision with a vehicle in Denver’s Baker neighborhood Monday.

The crash occurred around 5 p.m. near West 1st Avenue and North Cherokee Street, according to a tweet from the Denver Police Department.

Police said a woman riding the scooter in the street failed to stop at a stop sign and crashed into a passing car.

The rider suffered injuries to her shoulder and was transported to the hospital, police said.

Police have closed westbound West 1st Avenue in the area while they investigate.
