A ride on an electric scooter in Pacific Beach ended in a life-altering crash for an actor and Marine veteran.
Houston Teamer's pain is a constant reminder of the ride scooter he wishes he could forget.

"What started as a good day ended in my worst nightmare," said the 27-year-old Teamer.

On Jan. 20 at about 4:30 p.m., the Marine veteran was on a scooter headed to a restaurant to meet his girlfriend. He says he was in the bike lane headed east on Grand Avenue just before Cass Street.

"I see a champagne, silverish car in my left periphery .. then it hit the side of me, the side of my Bird scooter," said Teamer.

Teamer says he went flying, face-first into the pavement.

"I tasted blood, and I could feel teeth falling out of my mouth ... just kind of prayed and hoped I was going to make it through," said Teamer.

He fell unconscious and woke up in the hospital after a Good Samaritan called 911. He suffered a concussion, broken bones in his eye sockets, nose and cheekbones. He broke his jaw in three different places. Surgeons inserted three permanent metal plates in his face.
