Teen riding scooter dies after being hit by vehicle in Antelope

ANTELOPE, Calif. — A teenager riding a scooter died Monday night after being hit by a vehicle in Antelope.

According to the California Highway Patrol, it happened on Don Julio Boulevard at Poker Lane around 10:30 p.m. Monday.

CHP says the victim, identified by the coroner’s office as a 14-year-old boy, was riding a scooter on the east side of Don Julio while the driver, a 50-year-old man from Antelope, was driving a Range Rover.

The teen went into the road outside of a crosswalk and into the path of the Range Rover. He was hit and taken to Mercy San Juan Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

CHP says impairment doesn’t appear to be a cause of the crash.

Antelope High School confirmed the teen was a student there and sent the following statement to parents:

"Nathan Gebreamlak was a student of ours and a member of the Antelope community. Student tragedies are absolutely heart-wrenching and remind all of us how truly fragile and precious life is. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the Gebreamlak family during this time of sorrow."

The school says counselors and the Wellness Center will be available for students if they need to talk to someone.
