The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department has launched an internal investigation following a pedestrian accident involving a deputy and a woman on a mobility scooter.
According to officials, Deputy Khristina Gimeno was driving the patrol car last Friday morning when it struck the scooter in an Encanto crosswalk. A nearby surveillance camera reportedly captured the accident.
The woman on the scooter was injured and complained of hip and neck pain. Officials believe she has just finished grocery shopping at a nearby store just before the accident.
