Girl, 13, Killed in Sledding Accident

A 13-year-old girl has died after a snow-tubing accident on a golf course north of New York City.

Police in Rockland County say the teenager died Monday after sliding down a hill in Haverstraw and hitting her head on a tree. Paramedics treated her at the scene and took her to a hospital in Suffern, but doctors couldn't save her.

Police haven't released the name of the girl, a West Haverstraw resident.
