Update: Hoodline reports via a police officer at the scene that the victim was 25 years old, and he collided not with the dump truck, as was previously understood, but with another vehicle. Apparently the skateboarder was using the dump truck to tow himself behind, heading north on Seventh Street, and subsequently rolled under another vehicle.
