INDIANAPOLIS -- Video obtained by RTV6 shows the moment a truck pulled out of a parking garage and hit a person riding an electric scooter in downtown Indianapolis. 

The incident happened earlier this month near the Dennison Parking Garage on South Meridian Street.

The lawyer for the man riding the scooter says the driver of the pickup was coming out of the garage at a high rate of speed and wasn't paying attention when his client was struck.
