Goodyear, Arizona—Peyton Munger, age 13, was crossing Indian School Road on his skateboard when he struck the rear of a school bus that was making a right turn off 144th Avenue. According to the Goodyear Police Department, the accident occurred Friday afternoon at about 4:00 p.m. in front of Western Sky Middle School where Peyton was an eighth-grader.  

Peyton was transported to a nearby pediatric trauma center in extremely critical condition.  He later succumbed to his injuries.  His classmates created a roadside memorial that evening.  

In the short time since the family moved to the Valley from Houston four months ago, Peyton made many friends.  He was well known in the community for his kindness and willingness to befriend new students or defend against bullies.

Peyton is survived by his parents, Tiffany and Mike Beyers, younger brother and many other relatives.  The family suggests donations to the charity Stomp Out Bullying.

Our deepest sympathies are with Peyton’s family and friends as they grieve his loss.
