A 16-year-old boy was riding his bicycle when he was struck by a truck. He was dragged over 2½ miles (4 km) before he was deposited on the side of the road. The injuries evident at autopsy revealed the boy died from dragging and not from the initial impact. The scene, and the autopsy findings, will be discussed.
