Alana was in a crosswalk at the busy four-way stop at 64th Avenue and Foothill Boulevard when it happened. The driver fled the scene. Police say the car went around a bus that was stopped along Foothill Boulevard and made a right turn onto 64th Avenue, where the girl was walking.
Alana was a sixth-grader at Frick. I’m told that the family is planning a memorial at 5:30 p.m. this evening at the crosswalk.
Also this morning, in an unrelated incident, a boy was hit by a school bus at 40th Avenue and Mara Street while riding his bicycle to school, Learning Without Limits, at the Jefferson campus. The boy suffered leg injuries and was taken to the hospital, said district spokesman Troy Flint.
