An 18-year-old youth was died Tuesday of brain trauma he sustained when he was hit by a car during a 24-hour endurance relay face this past weekend in Arizona.

Robert Mayasich, a student at Brophy College Prep, passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center three days after he was transported by air from Arizona 74 west of Lake Pleasant.

He had been part of a 12-man team in a race from Prescott to Tempe. But he wasn’t running his part of the race when he was hit by a Toyota Camry Solara.

Arizona public safety officials could release a report on Mayasich’s fatal accident by the end of the week.

Those who participate in the 24-hour race are encouraged to wear reflective safety gear, like headlamps and reflectors.
