ELK GROVE, Calif. (KTXL) — The Elk Grove Police Department says a teenager died after being struck by a car Saturday afternoon.
According to police, a 14-year-old boy was trying to cross Whitelock Parkway on his bicycle around 3:19 p.m.
While crossing, the boy was struck by a 2012 Chrysler 200.
Police say the boy was taken to a hospital where he later died.
“Medical personnel did arrive on scene, transported the bicyclist to the hospital where they later succumbed to their injuries that were sustained in the collision,” said police spokesperson Hannah Gray.
According to police, the driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with police.
Investigators say it appears the pedestrian crossing signal had not been turned on and that drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor.
This is a developing story.
