Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities released the name today of a teenage runaway who killed himself by running into traffic on a North County freeway.

Nathan Nolan, 17, darted into the path of a westbound 2000 Buick on State Route 78 near Sycamore Avenue in Vista just after 7 p.m. Wednesday, according to the county Medical Examiner's Office.

He died at the scene.

About 15 minutes later, the Sheriff's Department got a call from a physician who reported that the boy had been at his office a short time earlier, making suicidal statements before leaving hurriedly, Sgt. Rob Smith said.

Nathan apparently ran straight from the doctor's office to the freeway according to Smith.

The boy's death has been ruled a suicide by the Medical Examiner's Office.
