Wolf Point Boy Struck and Killed by Pickup

3-year-old rode bicycle into path of vehicle being driven by 65-year-old man

GREAT FALLS — A 3-year-old Wolf Point boy riding a bicycle was struck and killed by a pickup truck in northeastern Montana.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the boy entered the street from a driveway in the town of Poplar Tuesday afternoon and rode into the path of a pickup being driven by a 65-year-old man. The Great Falls Tribune reports the driver did not see the boy because a parked car blocked the view of the driveway.

The boy died at the scene. His name has not been released.
