An 11-year-old Moroni Elementary School student died Thursday after she was hit by a car while riding a bike to school.

The collision occurred about 8 a.m. near the school at the intersection of 200 West and 200 North, said Moroni Police Chief Tim Hunsaker.

The girl was riding in an unmarked crossing area when she was hit. Hunksaker said the driver, who had three passengers in his minivan, claimed he didn't see her.

The girl was taken to Sanpete Valley Hospital in Mount Pleasant. She was then flown to Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, where she died.

Hunsaker said Friday that the girl's name likely would not be released until his investigation is completed. He did say the driver would be cited, but specific charges had not yet been determined.
