A high-school-age girl from the Northeastern School District who was struck trying to board a school bus in Newberry Township in October has died.
Newberry Township Police Chief Steven Lutz confirmed that the girl, whose name has not been released, died Thursday.
“Unfortunately, the student that was struck attempting to board the bus has succumbed to her injuries and passed away,” Lutz said.
The student died at Penn State Health Hershey Medical Center, where she was transferred for treatment of her injuries. She was originally taken to WellSpan York Hospital following the accident.
The student was struck by a vehicle just before 7 a.m. Oct. 26 in the 500 block of York Haven Road.
