ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Anchorage police have released the name of an 18-year-old man killed on a skateboard when he was struck by a car.
Police say Elmer Earl Selvester was killed Thursday night in east Anchorage.
Selvester at about 8 p.m. attempted to cross Bragaw Street at Northern Lights Boulevard.
A driver on Northern Lights Boulevard who had been traveling west turned onto Bragaw with a green light and struck Selvester.
Selvester was in the crosswalk but did not have the crossing signal.
He was not wearing a helmet.
Police last week said the driver did not appear to be impaired but that speed may have been a factor in the fatal crash.
