Carlsbad, CA — A young man on a skateboard was killed in Carlsbad last Wednesday night, February 12, after a deadly accident with a suspected DUI driver. Vinnie Zellefrow, 20, was identified as the victim of the accident and the driver was listed as a 17-year old girl.
Apparently, Zellefrow was riding a skateboard along Carlsbad Boulevard near Island Way at about 11:00 p.m. last Wednesday night. Police said that he was with two friends and they moved to the side of the road when they spotted a driver coming.
The driver swerved off the roadway and crashed into Zellefrow, killing him at the scene.
