Serge Murphy is a skateboarder who hailed from Lowell, Massachusetts. If you're wondering why we used the past tense there, maybe you should ask Serge who didn't follow his mother's orders when she said "don't play in the street" and "look both ways before crossing." The result of his ignorance: Murphy was absolutely crushed by a passing truck and got practically launched into another town. Realistically, it was 50 feet...50 feet! Luckily, the kid survived. OK, now it's alright to hit the replay button and laugh just a little bit.
