STAMFORD - A former Westhill High School quarterback has died in a longboarding accident in Vermont.

Peter Cernansky was just starting his first week of classes at Champlain College in Burlington, Vt. Police say he was skating with two friends Tuesday when he lost control of his board, fell and hit his head on the ground.

They say Cernansky was not wearing a helmet.

School officials tell News 12 Connecticut that the family is still in the process of making final arrangements.
