GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Investigators in the western Colorado town of Rifle have clarified the events that led to the death an 18-year-old high school student, who they initially said was “car surfing.”

Rifle Police Chief John Dyer tells the Glenwood Springs Post Independent (https://goo.gl/miAqqM ) that Kyle Scholla was sitting on the hood of a friend’s car when the friend pulled out of a parking spot April 1. Scholla was injured when he fell from the vehicle, and he died Saturday at a hospital.

Dyer says it “does not appear like it was a big thrill-seeking type of thing” and he probably used the term “car surfing” too loosely. The police chief agreed that most people likely associate the term with standing on a vehicle.

Scholla attended Rifle High School, where he was a member of the football team.
