A 23-year-old St. Charles man died three days after he was struck by a vehicle while he rode a skateboard in suburban Geneva.

Joshua Farwell died Wednesday morning at Delnor Hospital in Geneva, according to a statement from Kane County Coroner Robert Russell. A preliminary autopsy found he died of multiple injuries.

He was struck by a driver about 8:10 p.m. Sunday in the 1500 block of Crissey Avenue, also known as Route 25, according to a statement from Geneva police.

Police said the driver stated he “did not see the skateboarder due to the darkness along that stretch of roadway.”

No charges or citations were filed against the driver as of Wednesday, Geneva Police Commander Brian Maduzia said in an email.

The Geneva Police Department was still working with the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team on the investigation, he said.
