Glendale police are investigating a deadly pedestrian crash overnight. 

Officers were called to the scene of the wreck near 83rd and Oregon avenues around 11:45 p.m. Sunday. 

The pedestrian was reportedly in the roadway before being struck by a vehicle. Officials say the victim, a 15-year-old boy, did not survive.

Police said the teen was riding his skateboard across 83rd Avenue within the southbound lanes when he was struck. He was reportedly not within a marked crosswalk while on the roadway.

Road restrictions on 83rd Avenue from Camelback to Bethany Home were in place, but have since been reopened.
