 for anyone that cant be bothered to actually copy and paste:

"In July 2004, Colin attempted a stunt that involved a ramp mounted on the hood of a van that was driving toward him as he rode toward it. He failed in the attempt, suffering severe injuries, including breaking both ankles, fracturing a vertebra, and breaking several bones in his wrist. He also dislocated his ankle and right foot.

Because of his post-trauma depression and loss of ability to ever ride again, Colin committed suicide at 29, August 9, 2005 in Greenville, North Carolina."

 it was horrible... I saw footage of him in the hospital... he cut his lifelines himself and commited suicide from depression. I can't imagine what it would be like to know you'll never ride again.

 should of made the landing longer and a lttle less steep, wouldve hurt a bit more than a steeper on but at least you wouldnt get broken ankles and other stuff

 if you didnt notice he went sideways, length of the landing would not help at all.

 I mean to the side.

 guys this is from Nitro Circus 2. He is not dead. The injuries listed above are correct. The accusation of death? Nothing about that in the commentary during NC2.
