EASTON, Conn. (AP) — An 18-year-old is dead after he was struck by a car while riding an all-terrain vehicle in Easton.

Police say they responded to a call reporting an accident on Sport Hill Road and found Robert Smuniewski laying in the road.

An ambulance was called and Smuniewski was pronounced dead just after midnight Saturday.

Police said 84-year-old Stewart Lahey of Bridgeport was driving the car that struck Smuniewski, who was thrown from the all-terrain vehicle and hit the car’s hood and windshield.

No arrests had been made as of Saturday afternoon.
