Shakur Pinnock: E-scooter rider dies in hospital

Written by on 20 June 2021

A 20-year-old man whose e-scooter was involved in a crash with a car has died in hospital.

Shakur Pinnock was critically injured following the collision in Wolverhampton on 12 June.

He suffered a fractured skull, severed arteries, punctured lungs and a broken jaw – and was placed on a life support machine while in an induced coma.

His 19-year-old girlfriend, who was a passenger on the e-scooter when it collided with a VW Golf, was seriously injured.

On Facebook, Shakur’s mother Celine said he “succumbed to his injuries” and passed away at 3.48pm on Friday.

“I miss you so much my beautiful, gorgeous baby,” she added.

University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust has extended its deepest condolences to Shakur’s family and loved ones.

Following the crash, West Midlands Police conducted house-to-house enquiries and examined CCTV from the local area.

Detectives have appealed for anyone who saw what happened to contact them.
