Teen killed trying to cross I-30

GRAND PRAIRIE — A teen died while walking across Interstate 30 near Northwest 7th about 2:30 p.m. Thursday, according to authorities.

The 14- or 15-year-old attempted to use the freeway as a shortcut when he was struck in the far left lane by a Chevrolet Suburban, said police spokesman Eric Hansen. The Suburban driver did not see the youth until it was too late, police said.

Police did not issue any citations, Hansen said.
