A 19-year-old was killed while riding his skateboard Thursday night in Hood County, officials said.

A driver westbound on Acton Highway, less than a mile south of Granbury, struck Blythe Craig Baggett, who was riding his skateboard on the road, at about 10 p.m., said Sgt. Dub Gillum, Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman. The driver did not stay at the scene.

Baggett, of Granbury, was found in a ditch at the side of the road after passing motorists noticed debris in the road. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gillum did not have any description available for the suspect’s vehicle.
