Driver Arrested in Connection with Child's Death

The 19-year-old driver of a van which hit and killed a 9-year-old boy has been taken into custody by police.

The 9-year-old boy was staying at his grandparents’ farm in Jackson County at the time. He was snowboarding in the area when he slid down an embankment onto a road and was struck by a van which had difficulty stopping on the icy road surface.

The boy was taken by helicopter to Luther Hospital in Eau Claire, but was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
