SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Police have identified a 14-year-old skateboarder who died after colliding with a pickup truck in Salt Lake City last week.

Salt Lake City police say Juan Carlos Zuniga was riding a skateboard westbound at a high speed on Friday afternoon when he passed a stop sign, entered an intersection and struck a northbound pickup truck.

Medical personnel say Zuniga was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators say there’s no evidence drugs, alcohol or speed affected the driver.

Salt Lake City police say Zuniga was riding in the street and not on a sidewalk so a crosswalk crossing light was not activated.
