CHESTER, Va. (AP) — A Virginia girl has died after she was hit by a pickup truck while she was sledding in Thursday’s winter storm.
Chesterfield County Police say the girl, whose age was not released, was sledding down a driveway on Mistwood Forest Drive in Chester Thursday afternoon when she slid into the path of a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.
She died after being taken to an area hospital.
Her death was one of two in Virginia that was linked to the storm. A 75-year-old man died after he was struck by a snow plow in the Hampton area while clearing snow from a parking lot.
