"The victim was in possession of a skateboard at the time of the crash. Whether he was riding the skateboard or carrying it at the time of the crash is part of the ongoing investigation," State Police spokesman Dave Procopio said in a statement.

"The community is profoundly saddened by his loss and our deepest sympathies are with the Glendinning family. Tonight we will have a candlelight vigil to mourn Timothy's passing and to celebrate the friendship that so many on campus shared with him," the school said in a statement late Tuesday morning.

Students are set to begin classes Wednesday.

"Everyone here is so special and they contribute a lot to the community and it's heartbreaking to hear," Endicott student Christopher Cole told WBZ-TV.

No charges have been filed at this point in the investigation.
