Iowa boy, 13, dies after SUV strikes him while sledding

Adam McWherter died Saturday, 10 days after he rode a sled downhill and crossed into the path of an SUV on Buffalo Road in Anamosa, KCRG-TV reported, citing the Iowa State Patrol.

 

A snowstorm had canceled schools on Jan. 10 when Adam and a friend decided to go sledding down his driveway, according to a GoFundMe page set up for the boy’s family. The page reads that Adam "got going too fast and shot out into the road" as an SUV was driving past.

 

The 13-year-old "was instantly knocked unconscious" and suffered multiple broken bones and other injuries, the page reads. Paramedics rushed Adam to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in Iowa City.

 

Adam’s 11-year-old friend told troopers that he jumped off his sled to warn Adam of the oncoming car, but Adam did not see the vehicle until he was already in the street, according to The Gazette newspaper in Cedar Rapids.

 

The 49-year-old driver of the SUV told troopers that the boy was not visible until just before he slid into the road, the newspaper reported. The driver said they slammed on the breaks but could not stop in time.

 

No charges have been filed in connection with the incident, though troopers are continuing to investigate.
