According to the Alameda Journal/Bay Area News Group, the 13-year-old boy who died yesterday after a collision between his bike and an SUV was Lincoln Middle School student Brandon Sorensen.
The accident that took his life took place at Santa Clara Avenue and Everett Street.
“He was just a wonderful kid,” said Babs Freitas, assistant principal at the school, told the Alameda Journal. “He had a light that would light up a room.”
It was not immediately available whether Sorensen was wearing a helmet, and Alameda police are asking anyone who witnessed the accident or has other information to call 510-337-8424.
A guestbook for Sorenson can be viewed and signed online.
