SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A 12-year-old girl injured in a sledding accident this weekend in Syracuse has died. Taylor Denson of Auburn died Tuesday at University Hospital.
The young girl was riding a tube near the Westcott Reservoir Saturday when she hit a parked car head-on.
The incident has sparked action from Syracuse Mayor Matt Driscoll, who has ordered a new fence go up on the Westcott Reservoir hill. It will run all along the front of the hill, about a third of the way up. The mayor also ordered additional "no sledding" signs be posted on the hill to prevent other accidents.
