FAIRVIEW, Pa. (AP) – Authorities say a 6-year-old Pennsylvania boy lost control on his dirt bike and drove onto an interstate adjacent to his family’s home before he was struck and killed.



Bryce Treichler’s family told PennLive.com (http://bit.ly/2tLxSHH) he drove onto Interstate 83 Tuesday through an unfenced section next to his grandmother’s home in Fairview, outside of Harrisburg.

His 10-year-old sister, Nevaeh, says Bryce was going too fast down a driveway and kept going straight leading to the highway.


His grandmother Lynn Treichler says that the state should have built a fence or guardrail next to their property.

PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny says that fences are typically installed with initial construction of an interstate or during major reconstruction. The last major reconstruction near the boy’s home was more than 20 years ago.
