Student Struck by Vehicle Dies of Injuries

Ryan Viola passed away after he was removed from life support.


The local teen who was struck by a car in a crosswalk on his way to his Bensalem Boulevard school bus stop Thursday morning died from his injuries early Saturday.

Ryan Viola, 17, a senior at Bucks County Technical High School, passed away after he was removed from life support at Aria Hospital Torresdale, according to PhillyBurbs.

According to NBC, Lisa Ann Murray, 54, of Philadelphia, said she never saw the Viola because it was too dark at 6:30 a.m. when the accident occurred. She reportedly had the green light.

Reports say Murray was driving with a suspended license and may face charges related to that.

Some Patch readers left condolences in the comments section of a previous article.

Joanne OGara, another reader, said “my heart goes out to his family, such a shame.”

Rip Ryan. Gone to young and too soon. My deepest sympathies to the family and his friends. The one person I feel sorry for the most is his younger brother who was there and saw the whole thing. I read the article and his fb post. God bless all if you.
