Scooter traveling wrong way on highway severly injures driver
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A scooter driver was seriously injured late Friday along U.S. 1 after being involved in a wrong-way crash.
St. Johns County Sheriff's Office spokesman Kevin Kelshaw tells Action News the scooter was traveling southbound in a northbound lane of the highway when the man was forced to swerve because of on-coming traffic.

The driver of the scooter was flown to Shands Jacksonville with serious injuries. Police say he does not have a valid driver's license. The case is being actively investigated as a DUI by the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.
