On July 19th, just after 11pm a bronze 2006 Chevrolet Impala, driven by Tyiesha Watson (04/08/1990), was traveling westbound on 18th Avenue South.  A yellow 2018 Yongfu Machine scooter, was traveling eastbound on 18th Avenue South.  Watson stopped to wait for a vehicle to pass, to make a turn into the southbound lane of 28th St. S.  Once this vehicle was clear, Watson made a left turn onto 28th Street South directly in front of the scooter. The scooter crashed into the passenger side of the Impala.

The scooter driver was not wearing a helmet and suffered life threatening injuries.
