The Press-Enterprise

A Riverside teenager witnesses said was tagging the center divider of Highway 60 near Hall Avenue in Rubidoux died early today when he was flung over the center divider after being hit by a car and run over by several other vehicles, the California Highway Patrol said in a news release.

Blake Locko, 17, was pronounced dead at the scene, the news release said.

Witnesses reported Locko and another person standing in the car pool lane of westbound Highway 60 about 2:15 a.m. when Locko was struck by a 1995 Saturn driven by Pomona resident Ramon Rodriguez, 22.

The force of the collision sent Locko flying over the 5-foot concrete center divider into the eastbound car pool lane where he was hit by other cars, the news release said.

There was no information about what happened to the other individual standing with Locko.

Colton resident Anthony Gicking, 27, returned to the scene after striking Locko in the eastbound lane.

Rodriguez, who suffered moderate neck injuries, was transported to Riverside Community Hospital for treatment, the news release said.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the CHP's Riverside office at 951-637-8000.
