Skateboarder Hit by Car in Anthem

A skateboarder was struck by a car at the intersection of Anthem Way and Gavilan Peak Parkway today.

“A 15-year-old juvenile on a skateboard was hit by a vehicle driven by an adult male turning left onto Anthem Way,” said Sgt. Bryant Vanegas of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. “The juvenile was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.”

The victim was seen laying on the street near the median, in front of CVS, at around 2 p.m., as a fire truck and other emergency vehicles arrived while one adult was tending to the victim, who was moving but not sitting up.

The cause has not been determined. “At this time, the circumstances surrounding the incident are being investigated,” Vanegas said.
