Cocalico mourns death of student
A Tuesday morning vehicle accident on Smokestown Road resulted in the death of a Denver-area boy, and Cocalico High School students are now grieving the loss of a classmate.
As of press time Wednesday morning, East Cocalico Township Police had not released the names of any of the accident victims, and investigating officers were unavailble for more information. However, it was confirmed that counseling sessions regarding a fatality were taking place at the high school.
Principal Chris Irvine declined to identify the student until the information was officially released by police, but he did say a large group of grieving students were meeting in the school library to share memories of a beloved classmate.
"He was a wonderful kid," Irvine said. "Right now, the kids are supporting each other."
Police did release a report that stated a two-vehicle crash occurred in the 300 block of Smokestown Road in East Cocalico Township Dec. 18 at 7:30 a.m.
A vehicle traveling west at an unknown speed lost control in a curve and fishtailed into the oncoming lane, striking an eastbound vehicle. The driver and front passenger of the vehicle that lost control were ejected. The driver of the other vehicle was extricated from her vehicle by Denver Rescue.
All four people were transported to Reading Hospital by ambulance. The report described the driver of the vehicle that lost control as being in "grave" condition and the other three in "stable" condition.
The first vehicle was occupied by three male juveniles from the Denver area. The second vehicle was operated by a 23-year-old female from the Denver area.
Smokestown Fire Company, Fire Police, Denver Rescue, Reinholds, Reamstown, Fivepointville and Ephrata Ambulance and Medic 4, 9 and a Berks County medic were all on the scene.
The road was closed for approximately three hours. More COCALICO, page A16
