Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A man riding a scooter was badly injured Monday morning after crashing with a school bus.

It happened at about 7:25 a.m. near West Flamingo Road and South Torrey Pines Drive.

Witness statements and evidence at the scene indicated a 2013 scooter was traveling eastbound on Flamingo Road in the right turn lane approaching the intersection with Torrey Pines Road.

A CCSD bus was proceeding southbound through the intersection on a green traffic light.

According to witnesses, the scooter rider, 20-year-old Christopher Voutsinas, failed to stop for the red traffic light and crossed the path of the bus.

The front of the bus impacted the left side of the scooter and rider. The rider was wearing a helmet and was ejected from the scooter.

None of the passengers in the school bus reported any injuries.
