In the accident that took place, there were two vehicles involved: a tractor-trailer and a passenger automobile. The location of the accident, which took place just next to Pathfinder Regional Vocational Technical High School, was described in the police report as “the scene of the incident.” A student who attended Pathfinder High School and was 16 years old was reportedly the one who died as a result of the collision, which involved two automobiles.

A tractor-trailer was turning broadside when it collided with the side of the automobile that belonged to the student’s family as they were leaving the grounds of the school.

and the school will make its support services available to each and every member of the staff and students on Wednesday. Officials have informed us that the driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured in the accident, and that he is currently providing investigators with his knowledge and information.
