Authorities ID teen killed after falling from car onto I-680

CHP officials not yet releasing additional details about incident

A teen who died when he apparently leaped out of a moving vehicle late last month on Interstate 680 in San Ramon was identified by the Contra Costa County coroner's office Monday as 16-year-old Devin Hrovat.

Hrovat, a Walnut Creek resident, died in an incident on northbound I-680 on Jan. 22, according to the coroner's office.

At about 10:30 p.m. that night, Hrovat apparently removed his seat belt and exited a Toyota Camry as it traveled on the highway near Alcosta Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A white sedan that was behind the Camry hit Hrovat, who was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

CHP officials said Hrovat was a rear passenger in the car. The CHP was not releasing more details on the incident as of Monday morning.
