Last Monday, a woman sustained a head injury while ghost riding in San Diego. The woman and her husband, 29-year-old Neil Tillman, attempted the dangerous form of car surfing at around 4 a.m., but their vehicle crashed into a parked car instead, injuring the woman. Police arrested the man on suspicion of driving under the influence, explains an Orange County injury lawyer.
First popularized by Oakland rapper E-40’s song Tell Me When to Go, this form of car surfing entails exiting a moving vehicle to dance, run, or walk either beside, behind, or on top of it. Highway surfing is a variation in which a skateboard or sled is employed to surf the road while pulled by a car. Lastly, there is the most straightforward form of car surfing, in which a person stands or dances on the roof of a moving car. Ghost riding often results in injuries and legal penalties for all of the parties involved, as was the case in this accident and numerous others.
The Orange County injury lawyers at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the woman who sustained a head injury in this San Diego accident a full recovery.
