A 13-year-old Hilton Central School District student died after he was hit by a fire department vehicle on Sunday. The teen was Dominic Cook, a seventh grader at Merton Williams Middle School.
"Dominic was a wonderful student with a heart of gold," said Merton Williams Principal Tracie Czebatol in a statement from the school district.
"He always had a smile and 'good morning' for everyone, and brought a smile to everyone's face wherever he went."
The Hilton Central School District's Crisis Team has been notified and is organizing support services for students, families and staff affected by the loss.
Crews were called to Flynn Road in the area of Arborway Lane just before noon. Police say the teen was hit by a Lakeshore Fire Department vehicle after he went into Flynn Road. He was rushed to the hospital where he later died.
Flynn Road had been closed for hours as crew investigate.
We are waiting on more information on what led up to the accident.
