A teenage Holladay boy riding his bicycle was killed Friday night when he was struck by a car near his home.

Scott K. Whiting, 15, 2969 Wailua Way, was riding south on Naniloa Drive near 48th South about 9:30 p.m. when he was hit head-on by a northbound car driven by Robert John Hicks, 17, 2764 E. 5140 South, according to Salt Lake County sheriff's office reports.

Whiting, who was apparently racing his 15-year-old friend, was killed instantly in the crash, investigators said.
