UCM Student Dies In Skateboard Accident
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. Twenty-six-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.
