Died after Hitting his Head on a Roadside Mailbox

Nathan Ostrowski, 16, of South Fayette Township outside Pittsburgh was getting a ride home when the driver swerved to avoid hitting a groundhog. Ostrowski, who was resting his head on his arm on the car’s front seat window ledge, struck his head on a mailbox on the side of the road and died later in a hospital.
