    I hope there are no serious injuries or deaths... Casey Neistat often rides in the road on his boosted board, hope he isn't one of those injured.

    This isn't a topic to be joking about; stop being so idiotic and show some respect to the deceased

    Reported by who?

    Guys need to start posting sources with this sort of thing. It's really annoying seeing people make these claims and then having to dig for it yourself. If you post it you should provide evidence.

    It was mentioned on CNN from a "witness statement", the reporter read out what was said. Can't find an article about this so far though.

    I'm not joking, what are you on about? How am I not showing respect to the deceased?

    This will be the main thread so I’ll be closing anything else and linking to here.

    This is extremely worrying.

    When we get round to creating a rules/guidelines thread for the section, posting sources will most definitely be high up. As you would expect really from a News section.
