Pablo Ramirez death: Gx1000 skateboarder hit by truck dies
Pablo Ramirez died 23rd April 2019 after being hit by a large truck on 7th street near Mission.
The 26-year-old skaeboarder was run over by a dump truck while skateboarding up Seventh Street in the city’s South.
Paramedics found him unconscious, his twisted body bleeding in the middle of Seventh Street between Natoma and Minna streets. They attempted to revive him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said Ramirez was killed around 12:15 p.m.
According to reports, Pablo had spent Tuesday morning sitting in a San Francisco courtroom with his friends to support their fellow skateboarder, 24-year-old Jesse Vieira, who was on trial for an assault on a security guard.
Vieira is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and battery for an alleged skateboard attack in November 2018 that left a security guard with a traumatic brain injury.
However, when time for afternoon recess came, Ramirez left the Hall of Justice and was just three blocks from the courthouse, when tragedy struck. He was run over by a dump truck while skateboarding up Seventh Street.
Just moments before he was killed, 26 year old Pablo Ramirez was hanging onto the back of a vehicle while being towed, police said.
The truck that killed Pablo was driving down 7th Street when it collided with the skateboarder, according to authorities.
The San Francisco Police Department Public Information Officer Robert Rueca says first responders arrived to find a skateboarder suffering from life-threatening injuries and was later pronounced dead on the scene.
GQ profiled Pablo Ramirez and his San Francisco crew, GX1000, calling them the “fastest, most fearless crew in skateboarding.”
Pablo “P-Spliff” is one of “the fastest people who have ever skated on these hills.
One of the tributes shared on Twitter to honour him reads:
“Thank you for your raw skating, guys like you and the rest of GX1000 is what makes me want to skate forever, RIP IN PARADISE Pablo Ramirez 😪🙏🏽❤️
May his soul rest in perfect peace.
