I'm not familiar with this area, are there any lights there? Was the boy trying to cross against the lights, was visibility poor, was the driver not paying attention?

From what I understand, this young man was not at any sort of intersection but was just trying to get across the road. He made it across the northbound land but was hid by the driver of the SUV as he entered the southbound lane. That seems to indicate that this boy may have started crossing the road not realizing there was a vehicle coming from the other way. The man who hit him was driving with his wife, so I can only imagine how they be feeling about now.

Thanks Carrie, I can't imagine how they are feeling. What a terribe thing to happen to such a young man, my condolences are with his family, and my thoughts with the couple in the SUV.

Truly a terrible thing. My heart goes out to the family.I live in Shakopee. As a bike rider myself I see some kids with no regard to their own safety.(this may not apply here) It is as if they taunt the traffic. Red light, so what! A car is coming,guess he better slow down or stop! My first thought after reading the story was, how horrible this must have been for the motorist.
