A 29-year-old man who had been drinking suffered life-threatening injuries after crashing a rented scooter into a building in Pacific Beach early Monday, San Diego police said.

Alcohol was believed to be a factor in the crash, which was reported around 2:20 a.m. on the south sidewalk of Garnet Avenue near Everts Street.

Police said the man was riding a Lime scooter eastbound when he veered to the right and hit the building. He was not wearing a helmet and suffered serious head injuries, police said.

He was taken to a local hospital for treatment. San Diego police traffic officers are investigating the crash.
