Expert meeting driver Ken Block, who later turned into a web sensation with his trying tricks in the driver’s seat, passed on matured 55 after a snowmobile mishap, his group Hoonigan Dashing said on Monday.
“It’s with our most profound second thoughts that we can affirm that Ken Block died in a snowmobile mishap today,” Hoonigan said in a proclamation on Instagram.
“Ken was a visionary, a pioneer and an icon. And most importantly, a father and husband. He will be incredibly missed.”
The accident occurred in Utah’s Wasatch County and the Sheriff’s Office said that Block was riding on a steep slope when the snowmobile upended and landed on top of him.
“He was pronounced deceased at the scene from injuries sustained in the accident,” they said in a statement, adding that he was riding in a group but was alone when the accident occurred.
Having begun his rallying career in 2005, Block was named Rookie of the Year in the Rally America Championship. He competed in the World Rally Championship and won several rallycross medals at the X Games.
The American also co-founded sportswear company DC Shoes and produced the Gymkhana video series, which featured him driving on dangerous tracks and obstacle courses. The series racked up millions of views on YouTube.
