KEWANEE, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

A Henry County man is dead, after a crash at a Henry County state park.

It happened around 6:45 PM Saturday night on Lakeshore road, at the Johnson Sauk Trail State Park in Kewanee.

Authorities say a tan 2000 Chevrolet truck was around the lake at the state park, when a small group on skateboards coasted down the hill, using the truck to pull them up to the top of the next hill.

As the truck went up the hill, 20-year-old Brett Meier was holding onto it, but fell off his board.

He died at the scene.

It is unclear if alcohol or drugs were involved in the incident.
