A Bird Scooter rider was transported to a hospital Tuesday morning after being struck by a vehicle just north of downtown Pensacola.
Pensacola Police Department spokesman Officer Mike Wood told the News Journal that the collision occurred at 10:21 a.m. Tuesday at the intersection of G and Gonzalez streets.

Bird Scooters have been available to ride in downtown Pensacola since July 19 when the company signed a one-year pilot program with the city.
Just before Tuesday's crash, two people were riding the scooters northbound on Gonzalez Street approaching the intersection with G Street.
"One of them ran the stop sign at Gonzalez and was hit by a westbound car on North Gonzalez," Wood said.
Wood said the scooter rider's injuries were "very serious" when the person was transported to the hospital.
The PPD was still investigating the case as of Tuesday morning, and the names of those involved had not been released.
