New York CBS reporter Nina Kapur dies In ride-share moped accident

New York: A reporter for New York’s CBS affiliate CBS2 was killed Saturday after falling from one of the rented mopeds that have become increasingly popular in a city still reluctant to use traditional mass transit.

Nina Kapur, 26, was a passenger on a Revel scooter being driven by a 26-year-old man who was not seriously injured, New York police said Monday. The accident occurred around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, July 18, in the Greenpoint, Brooklyn neighborhood.

“We are heartbroken here at CBS2 as a member of our news family has passed away,” the station tweeted late last night. “Reporter Nina Kapur joined the team in June 2019 and was known for her contagious smile and love for storytelling. She was involved in a moped accident Saturday in the city and died at Bellevue Hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with Nina’s family. She will be missed.”
