Police say a 7-year-old girl was hit and killed by a work van near her Maryland school.
Citing a Baltimore County police release, news outlets report the second-grade student was running down the sidewalk after a group of children the afternoon of Oct. 18 when she “darted out in front of the van” as it exited a townhome community.
A responding officer performed CPR, and the girl was rushed to a hospital, where she died. The driver remained at the scene.
Baltimore County Schools was slated to send its traumatic loss team to Sandalwood Elementary School on Oct. 19. Interim School Superintendent Verletta White said she was “heartbroken” in a tweet, and canceled a listening tour scheduled the night of the incident.
Police are investigating.
