POTTSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Police say a 16-year-old Montgomery County, Pa. boy is dead after being struck by a pickup truck while crossing a street.

Officials did not immediately release the name of the teen but say he’s a junior at Pottsgrove High School.

The Montgomery County district attorney’s office and Lower Pottsgrove police say the teen was standing in the middle of a turn lane when he was struck.

Investigators say the driver involved is cooperating with the investigation and voluntarily provided a blood sample to police.

The school district said it is providing counseling services to students.

An autopsy was scheduled.
