Electric scooters are becoming just as common to see in may cities as Lyft and Uber cars.
While it may be a step in the right direction to reduce emissions, a new study from the Center for Disease Control found a surge in emergency room visits due to e-scooter accidents, CNBC reported on Wednesday.
The CDC's study, reportedly to be released Thursday, discovered that many of the e-scooter injuries treated were fractures and dislocations.
Head trauma, however, topped the list at 45%.
The culprit, according to CNBC, riders not wearing helmets and not being cautious around cars.
The CDC didn't immediately respond to request for comment.
