Police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found at a landfill in Milpitas last week.

Authorities found that the child was riding their bike in the crosswalk when they were struck by a car as it turned from Treat Boulevard onto Cowell Road.

The extent of the child's leg injuries are not known. The child was taken to Oakland Children's Hospital for treatment.

It's unclear how old is the child and if they were with anyone at the time of the crash.
