VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - There's more than one reason why you should wear a helmet on a motorbike.
Vancouver Police say a helmetless man was spotted riding a Honda Jazz scooter early this morning on the Downtown Eastside.
Constable Tim Fanning says the scooter driver got away from officers but then crashed the scooter into a newspaper box at Princess and Alexander. Fanning says as the man was trying to run away, he ran head-first into a steel pole. The 39 year old man is recovering in hospital from head injuries.
It turns out the scooter was stolen and the man faces charges for that as well
