(KSL Salt Lake City)   Man hits a woman long boarder with his car putting her in a coma with less than a 5 percent chance of survival yet she somehow pulls through and her family forgave the driver and consider him family now. Wait, what?   (ksl.com) divider line 92

Was his car called the Ugly Stick? Because man, she's been hit hard.

Hey, it has wheels and you ride it. It's just like a bike, and therefore a vehicle.

Share the road.

I prefer my boarders one woman long.

No I don't want to see her.

This is the best story I've seen in awhile on this site.

It must be late. I was trying to figure out how he hit her with his car while she was surfing.

Does that go for the guys laying on their backs doing the high speed downhill luge-thing too?

This is what is great about Fark...

Nevermind that she miraculously survived the accident and emerged from a coma. The real issue is: How bangable is she?

On a positive note, no lawyers were involved.

Dull Man's Curve, it's no place to play

Won't come back from Dull Man's Curve

I note no mention of the details of the accident.

This makes sense if the family knows that it's not his fault.

"They said her brain is sheared, there's nothing they can do. And here she is. She's walking, talking and doing everything. So we know God did this," Marcia said.

God ran her over with a car and sheared her brain?  What a dick.

I know, it's really serious.

Long boarders deserve to get hit by cars and put into a coma.
 
2014-04-09 12:48:10 AM  
So is KSL Salt Lake City a fetish site for feel-good family assimilation stories?

This is like the fifth "Person A did horrible thing to B, but B's family forgave A and now A is part of that family" I've read from there today. It's an oddly specific pattern to repeat.

The weirdest one was where A was "Hutu man", horrible thing was "murders" and B was "little Tutsi girl".

Mormons, so yup. But mostly past third cousins so less mutation, more homogenous appearance.

I had to google "long boarding" as well.

I'm becoming an old geezer and not familiar with all the happenings you young whippersnappers are up to.

Things like sock hops and the computer video electronic games.

Yeah, kinda cheapens the forgiveness angle if the girl was at fault. But then what are the chances that a bunch of kids were hanging out and the girl borrowed some cute guy's board to be flirty then went out of control into an intersection?

You know Christians do this forgiveness thing just to make themselves feel and look superior to you heathens.

Her mother said she is still in a lot of pain... "They said her brain is sheared, there's nothing they can do... So we know God did this," Marcia said.

A few ellipses and suddenly it takes a whole Story of Job tack.

From another article:
A witness told Provo Police that the teenager had her earphones in and appeared to be trying to beat a car that was turning across the road at about 6.20pm.
But she was hit by the vehicle, which had right of way. The driver immediately stopped and was not issued with a citation, in what police have called an unfortunate accident.
Hansen was not wearing a helmet at the time and sustained a head injury that put her in a coma for several days.


So, yeah, it was her fault.
But also, it was her board. Way to be sexist there, prick.

Yeah, I thought it had something to do with skiing and was wondering how a car got involved.

Article mentions they both attended BYU, brain says: "Oh, Mormons. Yeah, no wonder."

They will lie to you like a lying machine that prints money for its own upkeep by lying more, but they will never, ever imply that you couldn't be their own beloved brother or sister.

For them you grease the road up real good. Then sit back with a couple beers and watch.

Mormons or no, are they supposed to hate him forever and follow him even unto death like Christopher Walken in "7 Psychopaths" over an accident that wasn't his fault and which she has mostly recovered from? Not everyone likes to maintain grudges for no particular reason, subby.

you're not the only one. I didn't know long skateboards were a thing.

Then I realized.

I find it incredibly noble of the sheared brain girl's family to hold no animosity to the guy that will be forever traumatized by the fact some brain sheared idiot caused this to happen in the first place.

Until they start shooting. There's a reason Browning, as in Browning Automatic Rifle and Browning Machine Gun, was a Morman.

I bet she's going to walk her skateboard while in a crosswalk from now on

I live near a university and it drives me nuts the way students bike and skate at full speed in crosswalks, they don't even pause to make sure cars have actually stopped for them.  I almost tagged one girl on a bike who ran a stop sign, and I know she thought she had the right of way because she was in a crosswalk.  I came to a screeching halt and several students began to yell at me.  She ran a farking stop sign!

I do food service for a living on a college campus.

While working at my smoothie job, a girl asked me what the difference between fruit juice and yogurt was.
As a barista, another girl asked me what the word blended meant.

Being in college != smart.  It refers to your dick sucking ability it seems nowadays

Until now, I only knew of one definition of longboarding and I was curious as to how he hit her with his car while she was surfing.  quite a feat....then I saw the picture of her and her skateboard.  She is far and away the hottest skateboarder I have ever seen.  Every other one has been a pimpled and sulky teenage boy.
