FREMONT (CBS SF) — A 15-year-old boy suffered major injuries when a car hit him on Paseo Padre Parkway in Fremont Monday evening, a police sergeant said.

The boy was on his skateboard crossing Paseo Padre Parkway at Baylis Street near Lake Elizabeth around 4:50 p.m. when he was struck by a Toyota sedan traveling north, Fremont police Sgt. Paul McCormick said.

The woman driving the car stayed at the scene and was cooperative.

The boy was transported to a trauma center for treatment of injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, according to
McCormick.

Paseo Padre Parkway was blocked in both directions between Grimmer Boulevard and Mission View Drive until about 9:30 p.m.

The cause of the collision remains under investigation.
