Man Injured When Mo-Ped Hits Car
An Aberdeen man was taken to the FirstHealth Moore Regional hospital with non-life threatening injuries after he drove his mo-ped into the back of another vehicle Monday afternoon.
Curtis McGoogan, 45, of Aberdeen, was cited by Aberdeen Police for failure to reduce speed to avoid a collision after he hit the back of a 1999 Mercury Sable that had stopped for a Moore County School bus on North Poplar Street near Peach Street in Aberdeen.
The incident occurred at 4:05 p.m.
All three vehicles were travelling south on North Poplar Street. The speed limit on the street is 35 mph.
“The mo-ped was pretty tore up, and the car had some damage,” said Mike Conner, Aberdeen police chief.
According to police reports the mo-ped was “totaled” and the car sustained $2,000 in damage.
Three people were in the vehicle at the time of the incident. No one in the car was hurt, Conner said.
