The headline says it all.
Early Thursday morning, a paraplegic skateboarder apparently tried to hitch a ride on a passing big rig. The truck then made a turn, running over the 36 year old man – unidentified at this time – who suffered very serious injuries. The incident occurred at the intersection of Bacon Street and Santa Monica Avenue about 2:00 a.m.
The skateboarder was riding on his stomach, when – witnesses told police – he hitched a ride using the undercarriage of the semi. When the truck turned, he suffered a crushed pelvis and major internal injuries.
