A 17-year-old high school student is facing charges of reckless driving after an accident that killed his skateboarding friend.
Arlington authorities say that earlier this month 18-year-old John Malvar was riding his skateboard while hanging on to the driver's side window of a vehicle being driven by the 17-year-old.
Officials say Malvar fell, hit his head on the road and died hours later at a Washington hospital.
The 17-year-old, who was not named because he is a juvenile, appeared before a judge in Arlington County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on Tuesday. He was released to a parent.
Trial is set for August 8.
