WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A 10-year-old boy died Tuesday at Hershey Medical Center after he was struck by a pickup truck near his Quincy Township home, according to Pennsylvania State Police.
Christopher S. Richardson, of 8826 Tomstown Road, was dragged 180 feet beneath the pickup truck, police said. The report said he died of blunt force trauma and a severed vertebrae.
A Hershey Medical Center spokesman said Richardson was pronounced dead at 12:58 p.m., two hours after the accident.

Richardson was revived at the scene and taken to Waynesboro Hospital, then flown to Hershey by Lifelion helicopter, according to the report.
