In Michigan and other States, a party of teens and high school students is often the site of dangers, personal injuries, and, yes, even death. It was reported that Zachary Harp, a 16 year old student from Owendale- Gagetown High School was hit by a car and dragged for approximately one block. He was later airlifted by helicopter to a local hospital but died as a result of the injuries sustained at the scene. The Tuscola County Sheriff’s Office reported that the boy was transported at approximately 4:00 a.m. Another person tried to step in to offer assistance to the victim but this person was also hit by the vehicle. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause and manner of the death. Due to the facts and circumstances of the incident, a criminal investigation will be conducted as well.

A strange course of events transpired but it is not that strange for there to be violence and danger when there is a congregation of teens and high school students late at night.
