Reggie Destin suffered injuries on Oct. 19, 2012 while skating in a bike lane in Chicago. He was struck by a drunk driver and which put him in the hospital in critical condition. Unfortunately his injuries got the best of him and he passed away. I didn’t know him but he was a well respected local skateboarder from Chicago. From the outpouring of support throughout the skaetboarding community it is very obvious that skateboarding lost another amazing person.
There is a Go Fund Me page if you would like to donate to his hospital bills and funeral services.
There will be a Memorial skate jam this Sunday at Lincoln Heights Skatepark in LA, CA.
From Josh Kalis’s Instagram Page:
Reggie Destin was one of the best people on this planet. He was killed skating down the street by a drunk driver. He would help anyone he could. If you could please go to gofundme.com/reggiedestin and make a donation to help his family pay for life support, and funeral costs it would be much appreciated. I love you bro. You’ll be missed. I’ll help keep that city style alive for you Brotha!! R.I.P. Reggie.
