Two twin brothers were struck by a vehicle as they skateboarded Monday evening in unincorporated Elgin, leaving one of them dead and the other seriously injured.

The teen who died was identified as Emmanuel Delgado by the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The 14-year-olds were hit by a car about 5:30 p.m. in the 39W200 block of Highland Ave in Plato Township, according to the Kane County sheriff’s office.

The teens, both of Pingree Grove, were taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Elgin, the sheriff’s office said.
