While this summer may be a little different, one thing remains the same: Calgarians are still crashing e-scooters. 

Paul Fox is speaking out after a Calgary e-scooter crash that left his girlfriend with a broken jaw. Oddly enough, he told CBC News that the surgeon told him that his girlfriend's injury wasn't at all unique.
