VIRGINIA BEACH -- A skateboarder has serious injuries following an accident in Virginia Beach on Saturday.

Officials say a juvenile was crossing Virginia Beach Blvd. on his skateboard around 9 p.m. when he was struck by a car.

The cars had a green light, officials say, and a driver in the left turn lane stopped just short of striking the victim. Another driver, however, struck the victim as he crossed into their path.

The victim was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

Speed and alcohol are not considered factors in the crash.

The case remains under investigation.
