Storm Juno: Teenager dies while snow-tubing in New York

A 17-year-old boy snow-tubing down a New York street with friends has crashed into a light pole and died, police said.

Suffolk County police say it happened at around 10pm on Monday in Huntington on Long Island.

The boy was one of three teens taking turns snow-tubing. Police say he apparently lost control of the tube and struck a light pole.

Police identified the victim as Sean Urda of East Northport. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Long Island was under a blizzard warning at the time of the crash. A meteorologist with the National Weather Service says moderate to heavy snow was falling and winds were gusty.
