A teenage girl who died after she was struck by a vehicle while crossing an Antioch street Thursday night has been identified as Hasanati White, according to the Contra Costa County coroner's office.
Hasanati, 14, of Antioch, was struck while she was attempting to cross the street at the intersection of Hillcrest Avenue and Hidden Glen Drive around 6:40 p.m., police said.
She was airlifted to a hospital where she succumbed to her injuries, police said.
The driver of the vehicle, as well as witnesses, remained at the scene of the accident and spoke with investigators, police said.
KTVU spoke with principal Ivanna Huthman of Diamond Middle School where White was a student. Huthman told KTVU she had just started at the school this year and that she was well liked and "made an immediate impact" at the school.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing, but police said preliminary reports indicate that neither alcohol nor speed were factors.
