These are the stories we hate. On April 7, 2017 at around 7:30 PM 15-year-old Sandro McIlroy of Manhattan Beach, California grabbed onto the side of a moving Jeep while riding a skateboard, according to as story on 6ABC.com. The car was rolling at about 10 MPH and as we’ve learned accidents while skateboard towing rarely ends well.
At some point, the boy lost control of the skateboard, which caused him to hit the outer rear tire of the Jeep. He then fell, hitting his head on the roadway. . . Police and emergency personnel arrived and took the teen to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Our thoughts are with McIlroy’s friends and family.
