A 17 year old male who had just purchased an ice cream parfait, was carrying it Sunday night as he rode his skateboard down the east sidewalk of Highway 101. Instead of stopping for traffic at the intersection with NE 12th, witnesses say the boy barreled off the sidewalk and into the crosswalk where he collided with an already stopped station wagon. Witnesses say the boy bounced off the station wagon and then hit the side of a pick-up that had just turned off of 101 onto NE 12th. Paramedics were talking with the boy as he was loaded aboard an ambulance. There were no other injuries.
The boy was said to be wearing dark clothing. Due to his age his name was not released.
