An 18 year-old high school student was killed this morning in Sheboygan.
The teenager was killed in pedestrian accident when a Department of Public Works leaf collection truck struck him on North Sixth Street and New York Avenue at around 8:50 am. He was on his way to school when the accident occurred.
Emergency responders say the man was unresponsive by the time he arrived. He died at Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center from head and internal injuries about an hour later.
Sheboygan Police and State Patrol troopers will work on reconstructing the accident. It does not appear that other objects or cars were on the street that could have obstructed the driver’s or pedestrian’s view.
Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the young victim.
