7-year-old on bicycle struck and killed by vehicle in Fremont

Fremont police confirm a 7-year-old on a bicycle was struck by a vehicle and killed Friday afternoon. 

In a press release, police said the collision happened at 3:45 p.m. when the vehicle was traveling on Montrose Avenue. Officials said the driver stopped after the juvenile was struck and remained at the scene as officers arrived. 

The boy received medical aid before being taken to a hospital where he later died. The boy's name was not released.

Neighbors said the boy was crossing the street ahead of his grandfather when he was hit by the car. The vehicle then jumped the sidewalk and continued onto the lawn of a home. Neighbors said there is no stop sign at the corner and that vehicles frequently speed through the area. 

The investigation of the crash is ongoing. Police are diverting traffic from the area -- which is just east of Fremont Boulevard. Officials expect traffic to be impacted through the early morning hours. 

We will update this story with any new details as we learn them.
