MERCERSBURG, Pa. - A Warren Township, Pa., youngster was pronounced dead Tuesday morning following a sledding accident Monday afternoon, according to Pennsylvania State Police.
Marvin Michael Busby, 12, was sledding down a hill near his home with his brother at around 3:55 p.m. Monday when he entered the path of a pickup truck on Little Cove Road, Trooper Terry Pennington said.
The youngster was taken to York County (Pa.) Hospital, where he was pronounced dead Tuesday morning, police said.
The Ford F-150 pickup was identified by police as Brian W. Stanionis, 29, of Mercersburg.
He was not injured and no charges were filed, Pennington said.
Extra counselors were on hand Tuesday at James Buchanan Middle School, where Marvin attended seventh grade, said Robert Morris, a guidance counselor.
"We had guidance counselors on alert to look for reactions. Most students wanted to know when the funeral was," Morris said.
