A 15-year-old boy was struck and killed by an out-of-control car Monday morning while waiting for a school bus in Newark, Del., police said.
The victim, Bruce A. Mutter, of Newark, was waiting for the bus on Whitaker Road about 7:05 a.m. when he was struck by a 1996 Acura driven by Malcolm Deshields, 21, state police said.
Police said Deshields, of Newark, was eastbound on Old Baltimore Pike when he swerved across the westbound lane and into a ditch. The car continued across Whitaker Road, hitting the waiting teen and going into another ditch, police said. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene.
