MERIDIAN, Idaho — A Meridian High School student, killed after being struck by a pickup truck while walking to school, has been identified by his family and the Ada County Coroner's Office.

16-year-old Terry Binder was walking west while crossing Ten Mile Road, when struck by a GMC pickup truck traveling north on Ten Mile around 7:40 a.m. Wednesday.

The coroner's office has listed his manner of death as "pending."

A spokesperson for the city of Meridian says the driver of the vehicle did stop and is cooperating with police. Police say no citations or arrests have been made as the collision is still under investigation.

A GoFundMe has been organized to raise funds for Binder's memorial.

"Terry was a great friend, an awesome student, and the most wonderful kid any parent could have," his family writes on the fundraising page.
