Ken Block Obituary, Death – Ken Block, 55, a Parkite who was also a competitive rally racer and a co-founder of DC Shoes, died on Monday in a snowmobile accident in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. According to the Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office, Block was in the Mill Hollow area when his snowmobile overturned while climbing a steep slope. The snowmobile then hit him, killing him. According to reports, he was traveling with a group, but he was alone when the tragedy occurred. It was revealed that Block had died at the spot. The official cause of death will be determined by the Office of the State Medical Examiner.
“It is with great sadness that we must inform you that Ken Block died tragically in a snowmobile accident,” said Block’s Hoonigan Racing Division in a statement. Block got involved in an accident while riding a snowmobile. “Ken was a visionary, a pioneer, and an icon. And, perhaps most crucially, they are both fathers and husbands. He will be sorely missed in our lives. There were no signs of high-marking, which occurs when snowmobilers attempt to travel up a steep hill and return down without being caught or tipping over, according to Wasatch County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Probst. There were no indicators of high-scoring, according to Probst.
Probst also noted that he wanted to be careful until he received more information from the accident report, but he did issue some general snowmobiling advisories in the aftermath of a heavy snowfall. Probst suspected that the deep powder was a role. “Machines in the modern world are tremendously strong. And in that amount of powder, a sled might quickly topple over or get upside down, as happened above.
Block was a well-known rally car driver who won five gold medals at the X Games and was named Rally America’s rookie of the year in 2005. Furthermore, he grew to notoriety as a result of his “Gymkhana” videos, which featured risky driving stunts. According to the company’s website, the Hoonigan Racing Division’s headquarters are in Park City. After Block’s death, only Lucy, his wife, and their three children will remember him.
