Lake Stevens boy on scooter struck, killed by pickup truck

The sheriff’s office said the 12-year-old went into the street in front of the truck.

LAKE STEVENS — A Lake Stevens boy on a scooter died Tuesday night after the driver of a truck hit him.

Antonio Medina, 12, was riding scooters with a friend around 7:20 p.m. in the 5500 block of 91st Avenue NE in Lake Stevens. Medina reportedly went into the street in front of the moving pickup truck, which hit him, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The driver stopped and tended to Medina until Snohomish Regional Fire and Rescue personnel arrived to perform life-saving measures, which were unsuccessful.

The avenue is a straight residential road lined with mailboxes, tall grass and some pastures.

An autopsy determined that Medina’s cause of death was blunt force injuries, and the manner of death was an accident, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office announced Wednesday afternoon.
