Teen skateboarder seriously injured after being hit by car in Jamaica Plain

A teenage skateboarder was rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital Wednesday evening with serious injuries after being struck by a car in Jamaica Plain, according to the Massachusetts State Police.

The collision happened at 7:17 p.m. near 170 Arborway, State Police spokesman David Procopio said in a statement. The teen was riding in the dark at the time of the crash.

The road was closed for the investigation and traffic is being redirected to the inner roads of the Arborway to cause minimal delays, Procopio said.
