Saw stupid in Maui once, sort of similar. Surfer dude on a skateboard at a busy intersection. Multi-lane road, several cars lined up for a left hand turn & dude rides his skateboard across in front of them, acting stupid, making faces, etc. Went cruising on across, unfortunately for him the curb lane was for going straight and a women came blowing through the intersection about 40, her light was green, but I'm unsure of the speed limit. He cruised out and she nailed him hard, he bounced off the hood onto the windshield and then was propelled forward about 30 feet where impacted the pavement head first. Never saw him move again.
