Former Greene School Student Killed in Providence Sledding Accident

The incident occurred in Providence's historic Neutaconkanut Hill Park on Wednesday.


A former Greene School student has been killed in a tragic sledding accident in Neutaconkanut Hill Park in Providence.

Administrators from the Greene School in West Greenwich met with students and staff at 11:30 Thursday morning to report the loss of 17-year-old Alexandria (Allie) Alvarez, a Providence resident, who died from injuries sustained in a sledding accident on Wednesday.

According to police, at 4:40 p.m. on Wednesday, Allie suffered a fatal head injury when she struck a tree while sledding. Allie was transported to Rhode Island Hospital where she was later pronounced dead. Officials have closed the park to sledding as a result of the incident.

Allie was a student of the Greene School until the fall of 2012, where she was a beloved member of the school community. A moment of silence in honor of her and her family was observed at the school on Thursday.

"Allie was a beautiful and important member of our community and was loved by all who knew her," read a letter sent out to the parents of Greene School students. "Her loss has affected the students and teachers profoundly."

Grief counseling will be made available to students and staff Thursday and Friday.
