8-Year-Old Dies in McKean County Crash

An eight-year-old boy is dead following a crash on East Valley Road in Keating Township at just before 3:30 Friday afternoon.

State police say an SUV driven by 20-year-old Tieler Raymo of Smethport was cresting a small hill between Kent Hollow Road and Pierce Brook Road when it went out of control, traveled across the road and hit another vehicle head-on.

The little boy from Shinglehouse, who police did not name, was a passenger in the second vehicle, which was driven by 29-year-old Steven Mehl of Shinglehouse. The child was pronounced dead at Bradford Regional Medical Center.

Mehl was first taken to BRMC, but was later taken to UPMC Hamot in Erie for treatment of major injuries. Raymo was taken by ambulance to Olean General Hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.

The McKean County DA’s office was on the scene of the crash, and the police investigation is continuing.
