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.

good thing it wasnt an expensive longboard!

Aww man that sucks. Good thing your friend is safe though!

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!

Yeah, the drivers are quite mean nowdays...

lol sorry those kind of things are so weird when they happen how busy was you road that day? it looks like you could use a new board any way. might I suggest a cheap brand... moose is pretty good they have a lot of pop and are very sturdy $20.oo bucks on ebay.com

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

oh i just got a utility board shop deck, just a plain one. I really need a whole new setup soon. here what it looks like right now. You skate?


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...

wow i would be pissed if someone ran over my skateboard, ive only been riding 4 weeks but it would kill me if i didnt have a deck because i ride every day for at least 1 hour

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.
