There was never a man with a more positive outlook on absolutely everything. Even the shitty stuff. He turned ground round into a delicacy and made warm beer not that bad. You will always be with us, Big Dog. This is just too tragic. Our hearts go out to his family, friends and all the lives he touched all over the world. Rest in Peace P-Stone❤️

Professional skateboarder Cory Kennedy is under investigation after a car crash on Vashon Island resulted in the death of 45 year-old skateboarding filmographer Preston “P-Stone” Maigetter reports The Seattle Times.
Police reports indicate that Kennedy was allegedly driving under the influence at the time of the accident. Kennedy’s car collided with a guard rail and subsequently hit a tree at high speeds around 10:30pm. A third person was in the car at the time and was later transported to a nearby hospital where he was treated for serious injuries.
Kennedy’s BAC was measured by a breathalizer at .10 and .11. The legal limit is .08.
Kennedy and Maigetter were reportedly long-time friends and it bears noting that perhaps nobody is suffering more, save for P-Stone’s family, than the pro skateboarder himself. The two were both a part of the Girls Skateboard Team and had produced numerous segments together in the past 5 years.
*Our deepest condolences go out to the victim’s friends and family.
