TOWSON, Md. (AP) — The mother of a Maryland teenager who died after falling out of a moving car and was struck by another vehicle says he had been drinking an energy drink with alcohol prior to the accident.
Baltimore television station WJZ (http://cbsloc.al/AmIt1h ) reports that Kris Keys says her 13-year-old son, Michael Truluck, was run over Saturday after he opened up the car door because he needed to throw up.
She says other kids seem to think such drinks are OK and she's encouraging her son's friends to make better choices.
Truluck was an eighth-grader at Parkville Middle School in Baltimore County.
Police say no charges will be filed against the driver who struck the teen.
