WAYNE TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) — A 16-year-old is in stable but serious condition as of Wednesday night after being thrown from the bed of a pickup truck.
A 2004 GMC Sierra was going southbound on Steubenville-Pike Road at 3 a.m. on Sunday when the victim was thrown from the truck.
According to Ohio State Highway Patrol Lisbon Barracks, the truck kept going. A sergeant said if it weren’t for witnesses driving nearby the victim probably wouldn’t be alive.
Although OSHP would not identify the 16-year-old by name due to his age, we know it was Sam Hart of Lisbon based on our previous reporting on this story.
The truck was driven by a 19-year-old.
The truck had a total of seven occupants, two of which were in the bed of the truck.
Charges are pending.
