A 9-year-old girl was struck and killed by a motorist while riding a bicycle in Leavenworth on Wednesday, according to the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident occurred around 6:30 p.m. on Icicle Road near the intersection with Prowell Street.
The sheriff's office said a Chelan County deputy witnessed the collision and called for medical aid. The deputy began life saving measures, which medics continued when they arrived, but attempts to revive the girl were unsuccessful.
Police said the driver of the car did not show signs of impairment.
“This is clearly a tragic event with multiple families affected,” the sheriff's office said.
The investigation is continuing, with the assistance of the Washington State Patrol.
