A 45-year-old man on an electric scooter hit a pedestrian and was struck by a car Wednesday in Lake View on the North Side, police said.

About 5:42 p.m., the man was riding an electric scooter in the 2800 block of North Broadway when he crashed into someone on the sidewalk, Chicago police said. The person was not injured in the collision.

Officers saw the man riding the scooter about a block away and turned on their lights and sirens to stop him, police said.
