Late last night Scott Lofgren (aka Bounce) was stuck and killed by a car.

Scott was doing what he loved to do which was helping people. He was on the side of a very rainy roadside helping out a person who had just had a solo spin out when he was hit. Few details are known at this time other than what is in the article below.

Scott has served many communities by tirelessly volunteering his time and experience to help people.
He will be missed. He was a Firefighter as well as a Medic and somewhere silently a fire bell is tolling signal 5555.

He is survived by his wife Chukka. If you want to send your thoughts and condolences she can be reached at

I only met Scott this year, while I was living at Med Camp and working as an ESD dispatcher. I hear that he was also present at the New Orleans decompression event.

He will be missed, both on and off the Playa.
