A 15-year-old boy is dead after he was hit by a truck while riding a skateboard last week in suburban Plainfield. Tyler Eberly died this past Sunday at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. Authorities say officers responding to reports of a serious crash found the teen laying in the road August 26th at the intersection of Route 30 and Renwick Road. A preliminary investigation found a Chevy Silverado hit Eberly as he rode his skateboard between vehicles that were stopped at a red light. An autopsy found the teen died of multiple injuries from the crash and ruled his death an accident.
