Two hurt in 'hot-boarding' incident in Ocean Beach neighborhood in San Diego
The two were skateboarding in the Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Diego after 2 a.m. while being towed by a vehicle, police said.
The car was going too fast for the two to hang on and so they let go. One fell off his board and suffered scrapes.
The other hot-boarder collided with a 1999 Chevrolet truck driven by a man in his mid-20s, suffering serious head injuries, police said. He is listed in critical condition at a local hospital.
The vehicle towing the two sped off after the two let go, police said.
