The Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office says that Ken Block was riding a snowmobile on a steep slope around 2 p.m. when it suddenly flipped over and landed on him.
Officials say that he was pronounced dead at the accident scene because he was hurt so badly.
In a statement, the sheriff’s office said, “Mr. Block was riding with a group but was alone when the accident happened.” “We are sad to hear about Kenneth’s death, and our hearts go out to his family and friends who are hurting so much.”
Ken Block Death
TMZ Sports has learned that Ken Block, a rally car driving champion, action sports star, and co-founder of DC Shoes, died in a snowmobile accident in Utah at age 55.
Not all of the facts about the accident are known yet. Hoonigan, Block’s team, said in a statement about the tragedy, “Ken was a leader, a visionary, and a pioneer. And above all, a father and husband.”
“He will be missed so much.”
Block went snowmobiling in Utah and posted photos of his trip on Instagram early Monday morning. Ken was, of course, one of the world’s most well-known rally car drivers. He has been racing since the middle of the 2000s and has won dozens of races.
But Block didn’t just drive rally cars. He also did other action sports like motocross and skateboarding. He was also a very good snowboarder who competed.
Over the years, Block became a big star on social media, getting millions of followers and subscribers online.
