I’m sure you’ve seen this on every skate site by now, but I felt obligated to post it since the kid who got hit and the kid that filmed it are very good friends of mine.
Tim Crawford got hit and Max Mattoon filmed it, they’re skate crew is called inbred and this clip was in their recent video Unplanned Pregnacy, which I posted about a week ago.
This was completely UNintentional, although completely the cops fault. The road it happened on is one lane in each direction, there is NO room for a U-turn, I don’t know why he decided to do it there instead of driving up a few more feet to the intersection, turning his lights on, and doing it there. He should have done that.
Tim was fine, just in shock from being hit from a cop car. The cop pulled him around back of the VCU dorms they were skating and tried negotiating with him and tried to get him medical attention, which Tim refused.
Max sat on the footage since this past winter to save it for their video, and I guess a few people saw it and RIDE channel hit them up to get the clip.
So all this stuff you’re reading about it being intentional is completely false, it was an accident. And no he is not getting a settlement check as of now from the Virginia State Police, no charges were filed.
Tim and Max were interviewed last night on one of our local news channels, you can check it out here: www.nbc12.com/story/22985328/teen-hit-by-virginia-state-police-car-it-was-a-mistake
