LOWER PAXTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Fifteen year old Preston Gorecki was hit in the head with a metal pipe while standing at his bus stop Wednesday morning. A fellow student found him unconscious at the corner of Clover Rd. and Fairmount Dr.
Lower Paxton Township Police say Gorecki did not realize the extent of his injuries. Around 1:00pm, he texted his mom and was taken to an urgent care facility. He was then transported to Hershey Medical Center. His father says he has three fractured vertebrae.
"It's horrifying. Who does this to somebody? What kind of world are we living in? A child can't just stand there to go to school? He just wanted to go to school," said Jeremy Gorecki, Preston's dad.
He will be in a neck brace for awhile and has suffered from some neck spasms. He is nervous about standing at the bus stop again. Gorecki is trying to work with the school to have the stop changed. Preston goes to Dauphin County Vo- Tech. In a statement they said they are aware of the situation and working with police. They encourage students who have information to contact police.
Police say they are still looking for suspects. They believe it was at least two white men driving a metallic light blue sedan. Police believe this was a deliberate act.
