OKLAHOMA CITY -- Martin Guzman set up a flower memorial along Northwest Expressway Thursday morning. The memorial is for his 15-year-old brother, Anthony, who died there Wednesday night.

Warr Acres Police said Anthony Guzman was crossing the highway with his bicycle around 8:45 p.m. when he was struck by an eastbound car. Police said the impact tossed the boy about 75 feet through the air. He died at the scene.

"Northwest Expressway is a 45 mile per hour speed limit. That's an incredible impact to anybody," said Warr Acres Police Major Hugh Osborn.

As he crossed Northwest Expressway, Anthony, was heading in the direction of LifeChurch.tv at McArthur Boulevard. The pastor there said Guzman frequently attended the youth group meeting, but he was absent Wednesday night.

People from the church were at Capps Middle School, where Anthony attended, Thursday morning. They joined other counselors in the school library to offer sympathy and solace.

While the investigation is ongoing police said the driver who hit Anthony was apparently not at fault.

Martin Guzman said his brother loved riding his bicycle and had talked about going to college.
