WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) - A suburban Kansas City man is dead after crashing his skateboard over the weekend just weeks before he was to graduate from college.
The Warrensburg Daily Star-Journal (https://bit.ly/1FrVccF ) reports 26-year-old Dylan Austin of Independence was riding his skateboard at 2:17 a.m. Saturday down a hill leading into a park when he lost control and hit his head on a concrete curb.
Police Chief Bruce Howey says the University of Central Missouri student was going down a huge hill in the darkness and picking up speed when he crashed.
Austin was pronounced dead at the scene. He would have graduated in two weeks from the university with a master’s degree.
Howey says there is no reason to suspect foul play was involved.
