The police conducted a thorough investigation of the incident and revealed that The Iconic Figure was riding with a group prior to the accident; however, he was alone when it actually happened, which exacerbated his suffering and ultimately led to his demise.
Block was moving with relative ease until he fell and lost control of the vehicle, which subsequently buried him on the ice. The rapid injury proved fatal, as the 55-year-old legend failed to respond and ultimately lost the battle for his life, collapsing to his death.
The American has been a competitive rally driver since 2005 and in his first year, he was named Rally America’s Rookie of the Year. Since then, he has won rally-cross medals at the X Games and finished on the podium in the ‘World Rally-cross Championship’. In addition to motocross, skateboarding, and snowboarding, he battled in these other action sports as well.
However, Block regained his vigor after millions of people watched him overcome perilous tracks and obstacle courses in a variety of vehicles on YouTube. He has appeared in four different EA Sports racing online games and twice on the BBC’s Top Gear curriculum.
RIP legend Ken Block
