A family is pleading with the San Diego City Council to ban motorized scooters after a mother and daughter were severely injured riding one of the controversial vehicles in Mission Beach.
11-year-old Ally DeWitt and her mother, Courtney, were enjoying a day at the beach on their trip from Gilbert, Arizona when they decided to rent a motorized scooter.
According to the family, both Ally and Courtney decided to ride on the same scooter. A short while later, while riding on the Mission Beach boardwalk, the pair got into a serious crash, sending the mother and daughter to the hospital.
