Hartridge, 36, died Friday morning at the Queen’s Circus roundabout in Battersea — a freak accident thought to be the first of its kind in the UK, the Telegraph reported.
Hartridge’s lifestyle, fitness and travel videos drew nearly 350,000 subscribers. She also worked on a British television series called, “Oh S**t, I’m 30.”

The announcement of her death was posted on her Instagram page, which has 44,000 followers, on Saturday morning.
“Hi Everyone,” it said. “This is a horrible thing to have to say over Instagram but we know many of you were expecting to see Emily today and this is the only way to contact you all at once. Emily was involved in an accident yesterday and passed away.
The post continued: “We all loved her to bits and she will never be forgotten. She has touched so many lives, it’s hard to imagine things without her. She was a very special person.”
No arrests were made in the crash so far.
In an interview with The Sun, Hartridge spoke of one day having kids — despite the challenges of dating “hopeless men.”
“I’m so glad Tinder made me turn to egg freezing – it revealed my low fertility levels in time for me to do something about it. Whatever happens with my love life, I know I’ve done all I can to have a child one day,” she said.
E-scooters have become increasingly popular in many cities, including the Big Apple.
But the popularity of the shared rides has caused concern. Governor Cuomo last month wanted to learn more about safety issues before signing a bill that would legalize both e-scooters and e-bikes.
In April, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson took a header off an e-scooter while on vacation in Mexico. His concerns about the safety of the rides helped derail a different effort to legalize them in the city.
