Car Surfing Death

Kentucky college student killed in 'car surfing' accident

Kentucky officials say a university student is dead after falling off a car as he was trying to "surf." A Jefferson County deputy coroner says 19-year-old Benjamin Watson fell from a car Saturday night and hit his head. Jim Watson says his son was with friends and says he doesn't hold anyone responsible. The father calls his son "a great kid" and says he "was starting to mature." Watson is the second teen reported killed in a "car surfing" accident in the U.S. in recent days. Another 19-year-old was killed July fifth when he fell from the top of a Land Rover in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. One of the man's friends was charged with reckless homicide.
