Southlake teen killed on way home from Scout meeting

A 16-year-old Southlake Carroll student hit by a car while riding his bike and killed will have his organs donated.

Cole Malone was on his way home from a Boy Scouts meeting on Monday when he was struck by a car. He was riding his bicycle on Byron Nelson Parkway and tried to cross Lilac Lane.

The driver who hit Cole stopped to help and will not face charges, police said.

Malone's Boy Scout troop leader Michael Sidener said the teen was a leader.

"Cole is a young man that many of the younger scouts look up to he has trained Boy Scouts in our troop he will be remembered for being the ideal Boy Scout," Sidener said.

School officials said Malone was a sophomore at Southlake Carroll Senior High School and was a member of the Carroll Clay Shooting Club.

Malone was one step away from the Boy Scouts' highest level of Eagle Scout when he was killed.

"The last thing I did for him was I gave him my Eagle Scout neckerchief that I was awarded at my ceremony this is my backup," said friend Christian Barham. "With the amount of people he impacted he earned Eagle."
