Milano died the next day. Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Brian Locke said he suffered a "massive brain injury."

According to a witness, Milano was rolling down a slope near 100 South in Providence when his board began to wobble. He fell backward, landing in an seated position before hitting his head on the pavement, Locke said.

Milano was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

"We’ll never know if a helmet could have prevented this," Locke said. "He suffered some pretty bad head trauma."
