An official cause of death has not been determined yet. However, according to TMZ Sports, he died in a snowmobile accident in Utah.
The popular gossip website said that Block had an accident where he came off the snowmobile. Seconds later, the snowmobile landed on him.
He was dead at the scene. Block had posted on social media that he was snowmobiling earlier on Monday.
“Mr. Block was riding with a group but was alone when the accident occurred,” Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. “We are saddened of the loss of Kenneth and our hearts are with his family and friends so deeply affected.”
He was killed around 2 pm local time. TMZ is reporting that Block was riding on a steep slope when he was upended and the snowmobile landed on him.
“Ken was a visionary, a pioneer, and an icon,” Hoonigan said in a statement. “And most importantly, a father and a husband. He will be incredibly missed.”
Block was one of the most popular Rally Cars drivers before his death. He also competed in Motocross, skateboarding, and snowboarding.
With his team Hoonigan, he’s created videos for social media that have generated millions of views. Hoonigan released their latest video within the past month.
