ARLINGTON -- A young girl riding her bicycle in the parking lot of a north Arlington apartment complex was fatally struck by a vehicle Friday evening, Arlington police said.
The girl, who police believe was 7 years old, was hit about 6:30 p.m. at the Polo Run Apartments, 901 Greenway Glen Drive, police said in a news release. Her name was not immediately released.
She was taken to Arlington Memorial Hospital, where she later died. The driver remained at the scene, and police said it was too early to determine what caused the accident.
This was the second time a child was hit by a car in Arlington, the police statement said. An 11-year-old boy was hit by a pickup on Thursday afternoon in the 800 block of New York Avenue.
