LENEXA, Kan. (AP) -- A 13-year-old suburban Kansas City boy is dead after he was hit by a truck while trying to cross Interstate 35 with friends.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 13-year-old Ezkial Crapo died in the accident Saturday night.

Officers say Ezkial and two friends had gone to a Wal-Mart and were trying to return to an Overland Park home when he was struck. The boys made it across the northbound lanes and over a concrete median when Ezkial was hit by a truck. The driver stopped and is cooperating with authorities.
