Teen Walking Home From Jason Aldean Concert Killed in Hit-and-Run: Police

A teenager was hit by a car and killed while walking along a western New York road after going to a country music concert.

Connor Lynskey, 18, and his friends were walking along Sumner Road in Darien, about 30 miles east of Buffalo, the Genessee County Sheriff's Office said. Country star Jason Aldean played the Darien Lake Amphitheater Friday night.

After the show, Lynskey was heading for a campground at about 12:30 a.m.

The friends last saw Lynskey running ahead to catch up with another pal. They called police when he didn't appear at the campsite.

Authorities later found Lynskey in a ditch along Sumner Road. The teen from Hinckley, in central New York near Utica, was pronounced dead at the scene.
