A good friend of mine got hit by a car when he was long boarding the other day. The woman driving was passing a car. Heading over to hang with a bunch of my friends in a little while.

Sad news, sorry about the loss of your friend.

I have a longboard as well, but I always wear light colored clothing and never go out after dark; unless the area is well lit or free from traffic. Very tragic, but it could have been avoided.

Yah, for sure. A bunch of my friends longboard. I hope they be more careful now.

So, did she try to overtake another car the moment the solid yellow line became dotted? Basically the person was ticked at having to stay behind a slow car without being able to change lanes, tailed said slow car making a big blind spot and didn't have enough reaction time when person began to change lanes/overtake.

Damn.

Sorry dude. Condolences.

What's with the sudden flood of serious topics? Anyway, sorry about your friend, D-O.

Very very sad. As said above, this could have been avoided entirely. You should bring awareness of this incident to other kids you know who participate in these sort of activities. Alarm them of the dangers so they take the necessary precautions.

Thanks for the sympathy. The car was making a legal pass. It seems that it was the first possible chance to make said pass. It was just a bad accident. I feel like fucking shit just about now.

I'm sure the person who hit him feels worse than anyone will ever know. I am glad that they didn't do anything illegal though, I'm sure they are being punished enough as it is. Again, sorry for your loss.

Yah. No doubt. They'll probably get counseling.

Shit man. Sorry to hear about the loss Dee. I'm pretty sure the rest of the boarders will be much more careful now.

Doubt it. It's not like he is the first skateboarder in the world to be hit by a car. Skating is dangerous. Skating at night is terribly dangerous. Skating at night while wearing dark clothes on a dark road is megasuperultra dangerous.

No disrespect to the deceased; but he put himself in that situation. You always have to be in control of you, your board and be able to react to the world around you. There's no way this kid could have controlled the passing car and their inability to see him skating at night; in dark clothes; on a dark road.

His wake was yesterday. I went. It was brutal. I missed the funeral today but oh well. I was up late last night drinking with friends. Bin doing a lot of that, lol. Meeting up with friends later tonight and Saturday we are all partying in his honor. So it turns out he was staking with another one of my friends. Tyler pushed him out of the way of the car. Probably saved his life.
