LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A teenager has died after police say he was hit on his ATV by a pickup.
This happened just after 8:00 Thursday night at the intersection of Eastland Parkway and Anniston Drive, in Lexington. Investigators say it was there, that the teen ran a stop sign and into the path of the truck.
Police had the entire intersection taped off and say the teen, whose name has not been released, was taken to UK Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Another teen came to scene and he says the victim is a friend of his. While this accident has him searching for words, he did say he feared something like this could happen after he last saw his friend playing with the ATV, on Tuesday.
"When I saw him riding the four wheeler down the street, I was thinking in my head that I knew something was getting ready to come up and happen," said Cody McCullough.
McCullough says the teen involved has a twin brother and says his heart is breaking for the victims family.
Police say counselors are being called in to the teen's school on Friday.
