Boy Dies in Windham UTV Accident
Roger “Squeak” Dale Canfield, IV, 12, of Mehoopany, was killed in a UTV accident Monday afternoon. The name of the 16-year-old driver of the utility vehicle, which is similar to an ATV but can carry more than one passenger, has not been released.
Police report that the two were riding along a dirt roadway in Windham Township when a branch broke off against the UTV’s roll bar and caused the fatal accident. The branch struck Canfield. It is not reported whether or not the impact knocked him off the vehicle. There is also no report on the condition of the 16 year old.
Canfield, a student at Tunkhannock Area Middle School, was pronounced dead by Wyoming County Assistant Coroner Eric Kukuchka.
