Teen killed by trolley was Chaparral High School student


The person who was struck and killed by a trolley in El Cajon Tuesday night was a student at Chaparral High School, according to a GoFundMe account.

Witnesses told officers the student was walking on the tracks near the Rodeway Inn & Suites on El Cajon Boulevard when he was hit about 8 p.m., police said. He was not inside a marked crossing area.

The teen died before he could be taken to a hospital.

A GoFundMe account was created to assist the boy’s family with funeral costs.

“This student was a valued member of the Chaparral family,” the fundraising page read.

El Cajon police asked anyone with information about the crash to call investigators at (619) 579-3311. It’s unclear if alcohol or drugs were factors in the collision.
