Florida Highway Patrol says a 7-year-old boy was fatally hit by a vehicle while trying to cross a street on his bicycle in west Florida.
Troopers say the boy was riding his bike on a trail with his mother and his sister on Friday, when they crossed U.S. 301. FHP says he crossed the path of a pickup truck when he tried to rejoin them.
The boy died at the scene. The crash is under investigation.
