Approximately 4:30 p.m. an 8-year-old child was walking with her siblings to a convenience store along busy FM 1314 at Bert Brown. The child for unknown reason darted across the road not looking and was struck by a pickup truck as it was slowing to make a turn onto Bert Brown.
Central Montgomery County firefighters and MCHD arrived on the scene in seconds but were unable to save her.
DPS is still conducting the investigation and the road will remain closed until at least 815pm between SH 242 and South Loop 336.
