October 2, 2009

NEW LONDON - A second New London teen has died from injuries he suffered in a single-vehicle crash south of Hortonville.

Outagamie County Coroner Ruth Wulgaert says 18-year-old Mitchell Hankey died Thursday at Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah. Eighteen-year-old Nathan Scott, of New London, died Wednesday night after the crash.

Scott graduated from New London High School last year and Hankey was homeschooled.

Staff and students at New London schools spent Thursday grieving. Counselors were available.

Authorities said Hankey was driving north on State 15 Wednesday night when the car crossed the center line, struck a mailbox, and rolled over in a ditch.

A third teen suffered minor injuries.
