A 30-year-old man died from injuries suffered in a Revel scooter crash that came just days before the scooter company closed up shop in New York City, police said Friday.
The Bronx man’s death marks the third fatality involving Revel scooters in the Big Apple.
Francis Nunez died on Aug. 4 just over a week after he crashed into a pole while driving down Fairview Avenue near Wadsworth Avenue in Washington Heights, according to cops.
Nunez was rushed to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center for a critical head injury, police said.
Cops say he was not wearing a helmet.
A 32-year-old passenger on the scooter was also injured in the crash, cops said. He was treated at the hospital for an ankle injury.
It was unclear what caused Nunez to lose control of the scooter.
Revel announced it was temporarily ending its operations in New York City on July 28 — hours after 32-year-old Brooklyn resident Jeremy Malave lost control of a scooter and died in Queens.
