Girl, 10, dies after getting caught in car accident

A girl died Sunday after she was hit by a car while riding her bike in Seattle, police said.

The girl was riding her bicycle from a parking spot near the intersection of Pine and Pine streets to her parents’ house in the 2600 block of Pine St. around 2:30 p.m.

Sunday when a white BMW driving southbound struck her, police and the girl’s family said.

A police spokesman did not release the boy’s name, but said he was in the vehicle.

The crash was captured on video by a family friend, who posted it on YouTube.

The driver of the BMW was identified by neighbors as 17-year-old Jaden McFarland.

Neighbors said McFarlands brother was riding with him.

He was not wearing a helmet and was riding in the opposite lane.

Police said the girl was pronounced dead at the scene.

McFarland was arrested at the site.

Neighbours described McFarlanders brother as a quiet and polite young man who would usually play on the park playgrounds near the house.

Neighbor David Karp said McFallons mother, who is a retired teacher, was a former neighbor of the house and they often went for a walk together.

McFallas mother said she was not aware of the accident and did not know the girl.

A GoFundMe page set up by the girl and her family has raised more than $300.
