Two local school districts are reeling after a weekend accident killed 38-year-old Sean Richmond. Richmond was killed around 6 o'clock Saturday night when he was struck by a tractor trailer on I-380 North in Tobyhanna Township. Richmond was part of four state wrestling championships at Easton High School. Steven Powell was his coach and says the loss is devastating. "You get so depressed and sad about the accident and death of Sean and then you think of Sean and it brings a smile to your face and I think everybody's going to remember Sean with a big smile. He was a model kid. To me, he was virtually a son," Powell says. Richmond was currently serving as Stroudsburg High School's wrestling coach and its athletic director as well. State police are investigating what happened. Richmond was on his way to Stroudsburg's prom at Kalahari Resorts when the accident happened.
