Douglas County Sheriff’s Office warns of car surfing trend after deadly crash

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) is warning of the dangers of “car surfing” after responding to several calls — including a deadly crash — in the past few weeks.

Car surfing is when someone rides on the outside of a moving vehicle. The sheriff’s office says deputies have responded to six car surfing calls in the past several weeks.

On April 17, a deputy spotted two teenagers sitting on the roof of a car via the sunroof. The car was traveling more than 55 mph on C470 near South Quebec Street, DCSO said.

On May 5, deputies responded to a rollover crash on Quarry Drive. A 16-year-old was critically injured in the crash, and later died. Witnesses told authorities the backseat passengers were hanging out of the car’s windows at the time of the crash, according to DCSO.
