MERCER, Pa.

A 15-year-old boy was killed after being hit by a driver while fishing along the site of a family pond at 11:45 p.m. Thursday in Mercer County.

The unidentified male was fishing with Stephanie L. Rife, 37, of Kettering, Ohio, when Brittany Ann Raskowsky, 25, of Grange Hall Road in New Castle, Pa., for an unknown reason drove off the left side of the roadway, traveled about 240 feet through a pasture field and struck Rife and the boy, according to a report from Pennsylvania State Police in Mercer.

Raskowsky was charged with driving under the influence and was later released to family, according to the report. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending against her.

Both the boy and Rife were taken to Grove City Medical Center. The boy was pronounced dead about an hour after the incident while Rife was treated for moderate injuries, according to the report.

How in the world was she released to family? DUI, Vehicular homicide. Her family has to be deeply connected

Raskowsky was charged with driving under the influence and was later released to family, according to the report. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending against her.

Now this becomes more interesting. Release to her family is indeed indicative of family "juice" in the community.

It's a shame this 15 year old boy will never see his next birthday and the man he was fishing near was injured. Prayers for both the deceased boy and injured fisherman and for their families.
