Reginald “Reggie” Destin, had been hospitalized since the Oct. 19 crash in the 1700 block of North Milwaukee Avenue.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said Saturday that Destin had died.
Friends say they saw the driver swerve into Destin, who had left a bar and was heading to his car. Destin suffered multiple fractures, including a skull fracture.
The driver kept going, but witnesses pointed him out and police officers pulled him over as he turned west on North Avenue, authorities said.
Cook County prosecutors say the alleged driver, Luis P. Pena, 30, didn’t have a driver’s license or insurance but got behind the wheel.
Pena smelled like alcohol and had bloodshot eyes after being puled over, but he told police he “did not have that many beers,” prosecutors said. He also allegedly refused a Breathalyzer. Tests later revealed he had a 0.188 blood-alcohol level — more than twice the .08 legal limit, prosecutors said.
It wasn’t the first time Pena was arrested for a DUI. He was convicted of aggravated DUI in 2007.
He was ordered held in lieu of $400,000 bail last week for the latest charges of aggravated driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident with life threatening injuries.
But, because of his other case, the judge ordered he be held without bond for violating probation on another case.
When he was hit around 2 a.m. on Oct. 19, Destin was riding his skateboard for a couple of blocks so he could get to his parked car after leaving a bar.
A friend was about 10 feet ahead of him, according to another friend, professional skateboarder Johnny Fonseca. Destin’s companion saw Pena’s car swerve into him once and almost hit him. And when he looked back a second time, Destin was hit “dead on,” Fonseca said last week.
Destin was well known in the Chicago skating community and often frequented the skateboard shop Uprise, which is a block from the accident. He had jobs working for popular skateboard companies and owned a skateboarding shop called Push near Chicago and State in the late 1990s, Fonseca said.
Skating is “definitely his passion,” Fonseca said. “He’s an advocate for it.”
Fonseca said Destin is “very outgoing, very the man on the scene.” He also loves soccer and began a Sunday soccer league with Fonseca: “We usually just go out there, play soccer no pressure,” Fonseca said. “Everyone just brings their kids and we hang out.”
Friends will gathered last Sunday night at fundraiser at Rodan, where Destin organized DJ acts every Friday. The outing at 1530 N Milwaukee Ave was initially planned by Destin to celebrate a friend’s new record, “but in light of what’s happened we’re making this all about Reggie,” friends said in a Facebook post.
