A car just ran over my skateboard... Answered

Yeah..... My friend came over and was riding my skateboard
and he went up my driveway (which is a slight incline upwards) and tripped,
which sent the skateboard out from under him and back down the driveway and into the street were a car who was just driving by at the exact same instant drove by and went right over my skateboard!!

This all happened so fast that i didn't have time to jump and save my poor baby from that car. =(

Oh well at least me or my friend didn't get run over. I'm not really mad at him, I am more mad at the driver who just kept on going after he had just run my skateboard over!!!

Oh well i will just have to get a new deck. I will hang the snapped deck on my wall though.

Now you can use the trucks for something Instructablishy weird. Mount something scary on them for a hallowe'en entry, or make a small hearse-shaped skateboard.

I second the idea for a hearse-shaped skateboard.

Thirded! Don't hang those wheels up just to gather dust! They're still perfectly fine!

reminds me of a time when my friend (who skates, i bmx) and i were at burger king. he was texting and his board was in the parking lot next to the drive through. a car came by and hit it. it was loud and the guy thought he hit a soda can. but he got 20 bucks to buy a new one.

Bummer! That deck looks pretty thrashed, at least it wasn't new. I had one of those narrow, 1970's plastic ones for about 3 days. I went to kick it up over a curb, it rolled away, and got flattened (Literally) by a triaxle dump truck. Have fun designing the new one!

What'd you get? Element's my favorite board. They take a lot of damage, and they've got sweet designs, too.

You may have already needed the board, when I used to skate I had a crappy mongoose deck that got ran over countless times (the big car park with get steps and rails attracted old people... The worst it ever suffered was making a horrible cream noise when it was ran over by a pickup...

I am kind of surprised the driver didn't stop. After running over something that substantial, you would have thought he/she would have wanted to at least make sure he hadn't ruptured a tire or something. At least he could have said how sorry he was that this unfortunate accident happened.
