Girl, 2, killed when struck by relative's pickup truck in Lycoming County

WILLIAMSPORT — A toddler was killed Saturday when struck by a pickup truck driven by a relative in a mobile home park west of Williamsport in Woodward Twp.

Lycoming County Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr. on Sunday identified the victim as Shelby Folse, 2, of Houma, La.

State police said the girl was was on or along a street in the Harvest Moon Trailer Court when struck by the pickup driven by Stephen Folse, 21, also of Houma.

Folse was leaving a parking space about 5:30 p.m. Saturday and due to the height of the truck was unaware of the girl’s location, troopers said.

The undercarriage struck the girl and carried her about 20 feet they said.

The girl’s family is living in the mobile home park because her father works in the natural gas field, Kiessling said.

Neither state police nor Kiessling released the relationship between the truck driver and the girl except he was not her father.
