A 13-year-old girl died Thursday afternoon after a car struck her in Sunnyvale, according to Department of Public Safety officials.

At 12:14 p.m., someone flagged down an officer saying that a crash involving a pedestrian had just occurred on Fremont Avenue west of Manet Drive.

The pedestrian, a juvenile, was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Her identity has not been released.
