HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a 17-year-old boy snow-tubing down a New York street with friends has crashed into a light pole and died.
Suffolk County police say it happened around 10 p.m. Monday in Huntington on Long Island.
The boy was one of three teens taking turns snow-tubing. Police say he apparently lost control of the tube and struck a light pole.
Police identified the victim as Sean Urda of East Northport. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Long Island was under a blizzard warning at the time of the crash. A meteorologist with the National Weather Service says moderate to heavy snow was falling and winds were gusty.
