Traffic investigators determined that the the teen, along with another young man who fled the scene, ran eastbound across 82nd Avenue from the Fred Meyer store. A northbound vehicle struck the 16-year-old boy and immediately stopped and rendered medical aid to him.
The driver cooperated with investigators and it does not appear that drugs, alcohol or speed were factors in the crash. No citations have been issued at this time.
Investigators are continuing their investigation and names will be released later.
