The man who died when the gas-powered scooter he was riding collided with a vehicle in St. Louis Park has been identified by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.
Constantine C. Legeros, 88, of St. Louis Park, was riding a scooter Wednesday around 9 a.m. when he was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of W. 28th St. and Quentin Ave. S.
He was treated at the scene and then taken to a Hennepin Healthcare, where he died from multiple blunt force injuries, according to the medical examiner.
Legeros had a license to operate the scooter on the roadway.
The driver of the car, a Twin Cities woman, cooperated with police and was released pending further investigation, according to the City of St. Louis Park.
Authorities say drugs and alcohol are not suspected as factors in the crash.
According to the Star Tribune, Legeros was a longtime owner of a car wash in Uptown Minneapolis. The business stayed in the Legeros family for six decades until he and a family member sold it in 1979.
The location of the crash is about three or four blocks east of Hwy. 100 and a few blocks north Minnetonka Blvd.
