Two charged, including teen, after 16-year-old’s death on highway

Two people are facing charges in connection with the death of a teenager struck by a tractor-trailer as he walked on a Southern Tier highway.

State police say the arrests stem from an investigation into what led 16-year-old William Warrick of Painted Post to be walking on an interstate at 3:40 a.m. last Sunday. The boy died on Interstate 86 in the Steuben County town of Campbell.

Troopers say a 16-year-old girl has been charged with a misdemeanor for hosting a drinking party for teenagers Saturday night while her mother was at work. Troopers say Warrick left the party drunk around 1:30 a.m.

Also charged was 34-year-old Kelly Campbell, who was at the party with her own 16-year-old daughter. She’s charged with unlawfully dealing with a child and endangering the welfare of a child.
