The prankster managed to break both of his legs – and sprain his wrist – in an ill-fated skateboard ‘trick’.

The 42 year-old perched his board on a wooden box, and attempted to pull off a perfect landing as a car smashed through the platform.

However, things didn’t quite go to plan, as shown in a video on skateboarder Tony Hawk's Instagram.

The legendary skater posted a clip of several attempts from Steve-O, which all seemed to end in painful injuries.

The unlucky star dislocated his right ankle and broke it in three places, as well as breaking his left heel – with the final attempt shown in Hawks’ video leaving Steve-O’s foot pointing at an unnatural angle.

“Two broken legs and no painkillers for me-- wish me luck,” he wrote to his followers on Twitter.

In short: never try and land a skateboard as a car drives underneath you. It’s just not worth it.
