Teen girl killed, 8-year-old injured when struck by vehicle near school in Queens: NYPD

A teenage girl was fatally struck by a water delivery truck across the street from a school in Sunnyside, Queens, on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. outside Woodside Intermediate School.

The Ford truck hit two people, including a 16-year-old girl, who died at the scene. The 8-year-old girl who was struck is in stable condition.

Sources told FOX 5 NY's Linda Schmidt that the girls are believed to be sisters.

Police say the 28-year-old driver of the truck had the green light when he hit the girls and did not realize he had hit the pair. He reportedly continued driving up the block, where he stopped to make a delivery. 

The driver is being questioned by police. 

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
