A teenage boy has died after running away from a house he was pranking with his friends, moments after running from the house he was struck by a taxi and suffered unsurvivable injuries.

Morgan Ackerman aged 16 was playing a game called ‘Knock, Knock Ginger’ with two of his friends in Barry South Wales.

Ackerman had banged on the window of a house and ran down the pavement followed by his friends at 10.30pm before they ran out into the road between two parked cars.

In a statement read out at Cardiff Coroner’s Court, one of his friends said: “I saw Morgan start to run out into the road.

“I could now see there was a white and black taxi coming towards Morgan. I tried to warn him. He had not seen the taxi coming.”

Ackerman sadly died the following day at the University Hospital Wales, Cardiff, suffering from a “devastating” brain injury.
