Had it happen to me. The issue is the rubber flap could fold up under neath and was the perfect thickness to act as a very effective brake. 
threw me forwards as the front wheel is the driven wheel (front hub) for the electric motor, so it rotated the whole bike 

wrists took a battering

Couldn't that happen on any bike?
