    A New Jersey theme park worker who was struck by a lift truck has died from his injuries.

    The 19-year-old worker was stringing lights near a fountain at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson on Friday when he was hit. He was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

    The worker's name has not been released. No other injuries were reported in the accident.
