Skateboarder Dies in Parking Garage Fall

Police say an 18-year-old woman is dead after plunging from the 10th story of a downtown Sacramento parking garage.

Police spokesman Konrad Von Schoech says Megan Rountree of Elk
Grove was skateboarding with a group of friends at the garage around 2 a.m. Saturday.

He says Rountree went to a hand rail to sit down when she tumbled over the rail and fell to her death.

Authorities say an initial investigation shows the fall was an accident but that they were continuing to look into the incident.
