A Sheboygan high school student was killed this morning in a pedestrian crash.
The 18 year-old man was on his way to school when a Department of Public Works leaf collection truck struck him on North Sixth Street and New York Avenue. Sheboygan police say it does not appear that any other objects or vehicles were on the street at the time of the accident that could have obstructed the teenager’s or driver’s view.
The young man died shortly after arriving at Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center from internal injuries and head injuries. State troopers and Sheboygan police will reconstruct the accident.
Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the young victim.
