A man in his 30s riding a skateboard was struck and killed by a car Saturday morning in Burien.

The skateboarder was eastbound on Southwest 138th Street just before 7 a.m. and headed downhill, according to Sgt. Cindi West, King County Sheriff’s Office media relations officer. At First Avenue South, the skateboarder rode into the path of a northbound car.

The driver swerved, but hit the skateboarder, who died at the scene.

There is no evidence that either the victim or the driver of the car were affected by drugs or alcohol, West said in an email.
