Mum calls for e-scooter curbs after son, 3, hurt in hit and run

- By George Odling

A MOTHER whose three-year-old son was badly injured when he was run over on the pavement in an e-scooter hit-and-run has called for a clampdown by the authoritie­s.

Milosz Gleba suffered two broken collarbone­s after being struck from behind while he was walking with his grandmothe­r.

The rider, described as a woman in her late teens, was thrown from the scooter but jumped back on and sped away.

The boy was in such pain he had to be given morphine by paramedics.

Weeks later, his arm is still in a sling as he recovers from his injuries and he is now terrified of leaving his house. Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident on April 17 in Feltham, west London.

Milosz’s mother, Natalia Kwasowiec, 33, wants action taken on the vehicles, which can only legally be used on private land but are now being seen on roads and pavements. Their top speeds are capped at 15.5mph but they can be modified to go up as high as 70mph.

Miss Kwasowiec said: ‘Milosz could have been killed.’
