WAYLAND

Wayland police are investigating an accident Wednesday that killed a teenager who was crossing Old Connecticut Path near Wayland High School.

John Martin, 13, was hit by a vehicle driven by Sari R. Lelchook, 18, of Acton.

Police Lt. Bruce Cook said an investigation into the accident is ongoing. He did not know whether charges would be brought against the driver, but he said there is no indication so far that speed was a factor in the accident.
