Police determined that Kaywone Wills, a Southeast D.C. resident, and another boy who was a passenger on the scooter were traveling northeast in the 2200 block of Hunter Place SE at about 7:20 p.m. Saturday.

When the scooter hit the speed bump, Wills lost control, swerved, and hit a car head on, which had been traveling in the opposite direction.

The car had come to a stop before the scooter hit it, police say.

Both boys were taken to a hospital where Wills was pronounced dead. The passenger of the scooter was treated for minor injuries and released.
