DENVER — The friends of a man who died following an electric scooter crash in the Highlands say he was visiting Denver from Montana.
Friends of Cameron Hagan, 26, say he planned to visit a Colorado Rapids soccer game and attend a concert with a friend. But on Aug. 4, he rode a scooter into an oncoming car and never recovered, according to police.
“He was a great guy,” said Lexie Flynn, who said she was one of Hagan’s closest friends. “He cared hard and he loved hard for the people in his life. He never wanted anyone to feel alone or in pain.”
Flynn had a message for the public about Hagan.
“Please let everyone know that he was very much loved and will be very much miss(ed),” she said.
Hagan was the first person to die on an electric scooter in Denver since they arrived in the city last year.
Requested data from the Denver Police Department and found 51 scooter crashes for which the police took a report since June 2018. Nearly half involved another motor vehicle.
Hagan’s crash occurred in the Highlands, near West 32nd Avenue and North Eliot Street. However, most accidents seem to be concentrated in the LoDo and downtown area.
