KATY, Texas – A teenager is now dead after he was reportedly hit by a car as he rode his bike near an elementary school Thursday morning.
According to Fort Bend Pct. 1 Constable, the crash took place around 6:40 a.m. on Mason Road near the Betty Sue Creech Elementary School in the Cinco Ranch area.
Officials said the 14-year-old was riding his bicycle in the crosswalk when he was hit.
Authorities said the roadway will be closed in both directions for a few hours which may impact parent’s dropoff times for students.
If you are dropping off your child, officials said parents will need to access school from the north.
