The 34-year-old driver stopped to administer CPR to Collins until paramedics arrived. The boy was taken to the hospital but died a short time later.

The second teen skateboarding with Collins at the time of the accident was unhurt.

No citations were issued to the truck’s driver, who told police he did not see the victim on the darkened street until too late.

However, police said the incident remained under investigation.
