Adding insult (and a fine) to injury

Adding insult (and a fine) to injury

No, the guy in the bottom left picture is not a rabid Adam Ant fan going through a Prince Charming phase, it’s Toronto skateboarder Ben Davis after he got hit by a car while skateboarding in the street. A security camera caught the whole thing on tape, and City News reported on it. The street is supposed to be one that gets a lot of foot, bicycle and skateboard traffic. It’s not a major artery, and some residents even want it closed to automobile traffic all together. It’s not shocking that Ben got hit by a car, after all, he was in the middle of the street going against traffic. The interesting bit here (aside from gawking at the carnage) is the fact that the car driver got off scott free and Ben is the one who got the ticket. Check it out.

  1. Oh wow. I’m from Toronto, and know the (Kensigton) market pretty well. It’s pretty much the best thrift street in Canada, and is a marketplace full of grocer shops, clothing shops, bakeries and other awesome things, including Adrift skateshop. Which has a little indoor home-made feeling skatepark/spot in the back.

    And yes, just about everyone there walks all over that street day and night, the driver shouldn’t have been goign that fast, and at least should have been more alert to pedestrians/the skater.

  2. […] Somehow (because I don’t actually watch the news because I’m always sleeping these days, I only found out about this incident through Skate and Annoy. […]
