When they got out they saw the lights from the accident and said they hoped that Curtis wasn't in trouble for riding his skateboard, Smith told police in the report.
Stone, the state trooper, says in the report that he was traveling in the left southbound lane of Robert C. Byrd Drive at about 45 miles per hour when he heard a loud bang and saw that his windshield was broken.
He turned around and activated his lights and saw Curtis Webb in the road. There were no skid marks found at the scene, which is consistent with an accident at that speed, Mitchell wrote in the report.
"I ran to him and a nurse had stopped. She said that he had a pulse," Stone said in the report. "I returned to my car to call for help. I then took my jacket and the nurse got a blanket and we tried to wrap him up to keep him warm. A short time after that the nurse said she couldn't find a pulse."
Tracks from the skateboard were found in dirt in the middle lane of the road, according to the report.
"There was dirt and cinders left over from spreading gravel in the winter," Sgt. C.P. Mueller, who arrived shortly after the accident and took part in the investigation, told the Gazette Wednesday. "You could see where the wheels went through and where it stopped."
Mueller said he didn't fault Webb for being in the road.
"We've all been that age, we all do stuff at that age," he said. "He was out having fun and didn't realize the dangers involved. That comes from being youthful, unfortunately."
The accident greatly affected all of the officers there that night, Mueller said.
"I had tears in my eyes like everybody else," he said. "I've got four kids of my own. It was just terrible. ... Everyone there was concerned about the little fella that passed away and the family. [Stone] is a young trooper. He was tore up."
Larry Webb said he didn't think the investigation into his son's death was handled correctly. "It took three weeks before the accident report was released," he said.
