A 14-year-old boy who had just moved from Elgin to Colorado died when a car jumped a curb and struck him and his friend.

Robbie Fehlman was walking with a friend on Friday in Lakewood, Colorado, when the tragedy happened.

A woman was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide and careless driving. Investigators suspect prescription medicines may have played a role in the accident.

Fehlman had just graduated from eighth grade at Larson Middle School. He and his mother moved to Colorado two weeks ago to join his sister.
