    Should be a lesson, Skateboards don't belong on the road! Keep it in the skate park where they belong.

      probably the wrong time to be talking about a lesson my friend, when a boy was struck from behind by a vehicle and injured pretty bad. it's pretty obvious who is in the wrong to anyone who actually knows the story and the scene. you obviously don't know either.

    As the mother of the boy who was struck, I'd like to add that he was wearing light faded blue jeans and a blue plaid shirt. He suffered several injuries including a fractured pelvis on both sides, broken pubic bone in two spots, lacerated kidney, head concussion, contusion of the brain, and the list goes on. He is to have no physical activity for at least 8 weeks. He has a long road to recovery. Praying all goes well. We love you Tyler xoxo
