ASHFORD, N.Y. (WIVB) — An 11-year-old child died Monday afternoon after the driver of a pickup truck slammed into the young boy on his bicycle.

Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Deputies say the driver, who hasn’t been charged with a crime, collided with the child, who rode his bike on Gooseneck Road in Ashford at about 5:15 p.m.

Once first responders hit the scene, they rushed the child to the Bertrum-Chaffee Hospital, where officials say a doctor pronounced him dead.

The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office and New York State Police continue their investigation into the crash.
