Girl killed while riding skateboard

BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - A 12-year-old girl was killed Sunday while riding her skateboard on a cross walk on Palmetto Park Road in Boca Raton.

Shosanna Stern of Boca Raton was crossing West Palmetto Park Road at Boca Del Mar Drive around 7:05 a.m. when she was struck, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report. 

Deputies say Stern was pushing herself on a skateboard across the crosswalk when a 2005 Ford Mustang driven by Marvin James, IV, 24, entered the intersection and hit her.

Both Stern and James' Mustang came to a rest on the west side of the intersection, according to the report.

Stern's next of kin has been notified of her death. Neither James, nor his passenger, 23-year-old Maryanne Diener, were injured.

There is no word yet if James will be charged.
