Boy found responsible for teen's death
(WOUB) - A 17-year-old boy has been found responsible for the death of another teen in Athens County last September.

Ernie Bridgeman of Lancaster was found delinquent by the Athens County Juvenile Court yesterday.

Prosecutor Dave Warren says he was found to have been recklessly operating a vehicle, which resulted in the death of 17-year-old Tyler Moore of Nelsonville.

Bridgeman failed to stop at a stop sign on Township Road 269 and was struck by another vehicle on State Route 691.

Since Bridgeman now lives in Fairfield County, the case has been transferred there for sentencing.
