A ten-year-old Spanaway boy was struck and killed by a pickup truck while biking home from a friend’s house around 6:45 p.m. Thursday evening.
The fifth grader was leaving the driveway of a friend’s house a mere seven blocks from his own home when the collision occurred, according to The News Tribune. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Our deepest condolences to his friends and family.
The 64-year-old man behind the wheel was not impaired at the time of the collision, Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer told The News Tribune.
