Yesterday the Pennsylvania State Police released details about the death of a one-year-old child in Sparta Township, Crawford County last Thursday. PSP Corry’s Criminal Investigation Unit and Crawford County Coroner, Scot Schell, determined it was an accident when a child was hit by a Dodge Ram as it pulled out from the driveway of a home on Thursday, June 9th. Despite a prompt response and care from Emergycare and Spartansburg Volunteer Fire Department EMS the child’s wounds were too severe for life-saving measures. Multiple interviews with all the involved individuals indicated no signs of deception or foul play.
