Pennsylvania School Provides Counselors After Crash Kills Teen

A western Pennsylvania high school was making grief counselors available to classmates of a young man who died when his vehicle crashed into a house over the weekend.

State police say Hempfield Area High School student Aaron Koring was killed when his vehicle crossed the center line of a road then struck the house in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County about 3:45 a.m. Saturday. That's about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh.

The coroner determined the 19-year-old Greensburg man died of head and neck trauma.

Koring and his 18-year-old passenger, Elise Krugh, were both wearing seatbelts. She was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital where she remained in fair condition.

Toxicology tests are pending that police hope will determine what may have caused the crash. Those results will likely take several weeks.
