Teen fatally struck on I-86

State police are trying to determine why a teenage boy was walking along a stretch of an upstate New York highway where he was fatally struck by a tractor-trailer over the weekend.

Troopers tell The Evening Tribute of Hornell that 16-year-old William Warrick was pronounced dead at the scene after being found by sheriff’s deputies around 10 a.m. Sunday in the median of Interstate 86 in the rural Steuben County town of Campbell.

Police say Warrick was hit by a westbound truck. Troopers say the driver is cooperating with investigators.

The westbound lanes were closed for more than two hours after Warrick’s body was found.

Police say he was a former Rochester resident.
