One vehicle's uncomfortable bump is another vehicle's deadly obstacle.

It comes down to the wheel diameter more than anything.

Doctors at Dell Seton Medical Center have treated one to two injuries every day since the beginning of April, when stand-up scooters first arrived in Austin, Dr. Christopher Ziebell, the hospital’s emergency department medical director, told the American-Statesman this summer.

The injuries include broken elbows, knees and wrists as well as scrapes and cuts, but at least four serious head injuries and two injuries from a collision with a vehicle have been reported, he said.
