Police at the scene say the driver was turning left from Woodlawn onto Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard when the the collision happened. The driver stayed at the scene and was cooperating with the investigation.

LAPD Detective Supervisor Moses Castillo said the crash was a reminder that hurrying can sometimes be deadly.

“You’d rather lose a minute of your life than to lose your life in a minute, so please slow down today,” he said.

It’s not clear if slick roads from Tuesday’s storm contributed to the crash.

Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard was shut down for the investigation.

It’s not clear which school the student was on his way to, and investigators are also looking for video of or witnesses to the crash.
