Chillicothe Teen Dies After "Car Surfing" Accident

Teachers and fellow students at a southern Ohio high school are mourning the loss of a sophomore who police say was killed while "car surfing." Police in Chillicothe say 16-year-old Jacob Wolfe was riding on the hood of a 1991 Honda driven by another teen in a Walmart parking lot. He fell off and suffered a severe head injury. Wolfe died as a result of the injury on Sunday afternoon. Police are still investigating the incident, but no charges are expected. Pastors and grief counselors were to be available Monday to help his fellow Chillicothe High School students cope with the loss.
