I thought this was a hoax at first. Gutted that it's legit.

Professional rally driver Ken Block died in a snowmobile accident on Monday.

He was 55 years old.

Block was known for helping found DC Shoes, being a rally-car driver, cultivating the Hoonigan automotive-enthusiast lifestyle and merchandise brand, and starting up the series of Gymkhana stunt videos.

"It’s with our deepest regrets that we can confirm that Ken Block passed away in a snowmobile accident today," the Hoonigan brand said in a statement posted on its Instagram page. "Ken was a visionary, a pioneer and an icon. And most importantly, a father and husband. He will be incredibly missed. Please respect the family’s privacy at this time while they grieve."

Block's hobbies in the winter included snowboarding and snowmobiling.

He is survived by his wife, Lucy, and three children. This is a developing story and we will follow up as we learn more, either via updates to this post or with follow-up stories.

RIP, Ken Block.

Just heartbreaking news so early into 2023. The man was legend and helped bring so many people into motorsports and car culture in general. I feel so bad for the family and the Hoonigan team. All the recent videos with his daughter you could tell how good of a father and person he was. R.I.P Ken!
I got teary eyed watching this. Great video from Hoonigan honoring Ken.
