(Salt Lake City, KSL News) -- Police are asking the public for help in recounting an event in Orem Saturday night that cost one teenager his life.

A car full of boys was headed northbound on State Street when another car forced them off road.

It's not uncommon for teens to cruise State Street on Saturday night. That's what these boys were doing when a car cut them off, ran them off the road and kept going.

The Saturn the teens were driving rolled, and 17-year-old Antonio Ramirez was killed. Elliot Walker was driving the car, and was one of Ramirez' best friends. He says Ramirez was an all-around good guy.

Orem police are retracing skid-marks in hopes of learning more about the incident. They are looking for the driver of the car that forced the boys off the road. They believe the driver may have been in a light-colored older modeled Toyota. They say it could have been white or champagne-colored.

Orem police are asking anyone who witnessed the incident or who has more information to contact them. Their telephone number is 801-229-7070.
