SEGWAY CLAIMS FIRST VICTIM: Orrin

SEGWAY CLAIMS FIRST VICTIM: Orrin Judd sent me the link to this story, which he found on the Enter Stage Right Web log. Apparently, the Segway has had its first public accident. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that an officer, whose name wasn’t released, was injured recently using one. The Journal-Constitution says:

A member of the Central Atlanta Progress Ambassador Force toppled from one of the personal scooters on Cone Street near Luckie Street about 8:40 p.m. Thursday.

The officer, whose name was not released, injured his knee going up a driveway onto the sidewalk, said Atlanta Police Sgt. Michael Giugliano. He was taken to Grady Hospital.

ESR describes the picture as “priceless”. I wonder if the injured officer will be calling these folks (or vice-versa)?
