An 8-year-old boy riding a miniature electric bike was killed in a collision with a pickup truck Friday night in South San Jose.
The truck, a 2008 Chevy, struck the boy, who was not wearing a helmet, in the 800 block of Farm Drive near Pearl Avenue at 7 p.m.
The boy was transferred to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. As of late Saturday, police had still not released the child's name.
Sgt. Jason Dwyer said a preliminary investigation showed the boy traveled into the path of the truck.
The driver cooperated with the investigation, Dwyer said, and there was no indication of speeding or drug or alcohol use on the part of the driver.
The investigation is continuing, Dwyer said.
