candle-small6A 12-year-old girl was killed Sunday night after she was hit by a car while riding on a skateboard in suburban Boca Raton.

Shoshana R. Stern of suburban Boca Raton was standing on the southeast corner of West Palmetto Park Road and Boca Del Mar Drive just after 7 p.m. Sunday night. While pedaling on her skateboard in the crosswalk, Stern then crossed West Palmetto Park Road from the south side to the north side, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s report.

At the same time, Marvin S. James IV, 24, was driving a 2005 Ford Mustang west on West Palmetto Park Road approaching the intersection. While entering the intersection, James’ vehicle hit Stern.

Both the Mustang and Stern came to rest on the west side of the intersection.

James and his passenger 23-year-old Maryanne E. Diener, both of suburban West Palm Beach, were not injured in the crash. Both were wearing seat belts, the report says.

Investigators do not suspect the use of drugs or alcohol in the wreck.

  6. Shoshie was a ray of sunlight, one of the sweetest girls you could ever hope to meet. I only knew her briefly, but that was enough to know that she was the kind of girl that you would hope your own children would grow up to be. She was kind, funny and wise beyond her years. My thoughts and prayers go out to her whole family, as well as her community. I know that she will forever be missed!
