Girl riding electric bicycle dies in collision with vehicle in San Jose

A girl riding an electric bicycle in San Jose was struck and killed by a vehicle late Thursday morning.

The accident happened in the area of Santee Dr. and McQuesten Dr, according to police. 

Police say the driver was behind the wheel of a 2017 GMC Sierra truck and was pulling into an apartment complex driveway when she struck the girl on the bicycle. The driver is cooperating with investigators. 

Neither the driver of the vehicle or the child who was killed were identified, only that they were both females.

The girl was transported to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Less than 24 hours earlier, a child was killed by a car carrier unloading a truck in San Jose. The driver was attempting to move a truck from the car carrier as the victim jumped onto the trailer and was positioned directly in front of it.

Thursday's accident is the 48th deadly collision in San Jose this year, and the 49th pedestrian death.
