The risky practice of "Street Surfing" has resulted in serious injuries to a 21-year old Grants Pass man. Police say Benjamin Davis suffered life threatening injuries to his brain and internal organs in an accident at just after midnight today.
Davis was riding with friends in a vehicle traveling on West Jones Creek Road returning from a trip to the store. He opened the door to begin street surfing when he lost his grip on the vehicle and fell under it. The 17-year old driver and another passenger took Davis to the hospital.
The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety says street surfing is a very dangerous practice and it is illegal as well.
