Anyone else pretty shocked by this? I've been watching her videos for ages. She was killed on an e bike in a collision with a lorry.

Found out on the news. I myself didn't watch a lot of her videos, but I know a lot of people did. It's always a shock to hear someone passing away so suddenly.

My thoughts go out to her family and friends in such a difficult time.

That's a real shame, RIP. I'm not massively into Youtube but I did enjoy watching a lot of her 10 Reasons Why videos a while ago.

What happened? The article doesn't describe much about the crash, just that she was popular and committing a crime at the time

Riding an electric scooter and hit by a lorry.

I read about this yesterday, was mentioned in an article in the Metro on electric scooters and their safety/legality.

So sad. Her 10 reasons vids were/are brilliant.

E-Scooters are more dangerous than the makers of them would like people to think.

It is illegal to ride them off private land in the UK and they go at up to 25 miles an hour

E scooter, I mean I feel sorry but she was doing something illegal, if she had obeyed the law she would not be dead

I’ve recently been to Stockholm and these things are really threatening to pedestrians in a way that cycles aren’t. The speeds are higher than most cyclists manage on urban cycle paths; the noise is lower; users don’t use a bell or horn.

However, provided the UK doesn’t legitimate their use, and particularly their hiring, they will more or less vanish like previous transport fads.

20 years ago people were zipping around urban spaces, particularly indoor ones, on little manual scooters. It seemed at one time that every airport worker was on a scooter. You never see them now.

The Segway boom never recovered from the death of the inventor.

Mobile phones didn’t kill off CB radio; boredom did, when phones were still the size of housebricks and only bankers could afford the call charges.
