Port Adelaide young gun, Mitch Georgiades, in crash that left teen scooter rider in hospital


Port Adelaide Football Club player, Mitch Georgiades, has been involved in a crash at Henley Beach, during which a 16-year-old girl was knocked off her scooter.

Police say Georgiades, 19, was driving a Toyota Prado towards the intersection of Grange Rd and Mitton Ave, when his car and the scooter collided.

The girl was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Her injuries are not serious.

The scooter was towed from the scene and no charges have been laid.

The Advertiser has been contacted for comment.

The accident continues a difficult run for high-flying Georgiades, who has been battling hamstring soreness since being subbed out of his team’s final match of the AFL minor round, a thrilling win over the Western Bulldogs on August 20.
