UPDATE: The driver of the scooter is the son of Kellie Freeman Rohrbaugh, formerly of Planned Parenthood and currently a Missouri Democratic Party staffer. Rohrbaugh phoned The Notebook from Denver to say that her son is being evaluated for X-rays. "They're looking at his injuries. It does look like he's going to be ok," said Rohrbaugh, who says her parents and husband have joined her son at the hospital.

"I think he just didn't see him coming"
PLUS: MORE IRONY: A Springfield policeman also unintentionally weighs into the helmet debate:
"Motorcycles and scooters need to be very careful. We recommend everybody wears a helmet. It's too easy not to be seen and end up suffering a head injury or worse if the vehicles don't see you," said Lt. Grizzell.
"It's like playing roulette. I'd recommend wear a helmet all the time."
