A 17-year-old boy was seen tagging graffiti on the center divider of the Pomona Freeway in Riverside early Saturday just before he was struck by vehicles and killed, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Blake Locko of Riverside was standing in the westbound carpool lane just east of Hall Avenue about 2:30 a.m. when he was first hit by a car and thrown over a 5-foot-tall concrete divider into eastbound lanes, where he was hit by several other vehicles, the CHP said. Locko died at the scene, and one of the drivers was treated at Riverside Community Hospital for neck injuries.
