A man has died following a crash with an electric scooter northwest of Brisbane.

The 55-year-old man was riding along a designated path along Yellwood drive in Ferny Hills, before he smashed into a concrete wall around 3:50pm on Wednesday.

As emergency crews responded to the incident, he tragically died at the scene after suffering major head injuries.

Police added that the man was not wearing a helmet during the crash, opening up a Forensic Crash Unit investigation.


It comes after the death of a 22-year-old man in Logan last month.

Blake Whell passed away as a result of serious burns, when his e-scooter charger exploded inside his caravan unit.

"I’ve just lost my son … Beware of these scooters, they’re dangerous, Please, I beg you. It’s all I have to say, be careful of these e-scooters," the 22-year-olds father said of the dangers.
