EMMAUS, Pa. (AP) - An 11-year-old is dead after a car hit her and another elementary school student she was walking with in eastern Pennsylvania.

Police say Abigail Zukowski was walking with a friend at about 4 p.m. Monday when the two were hit on an Emmaus Street. Zukowski was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead at 4:35 p.m.

The Lehigh County coroner’s office says she died of blunt force injuries sustained when she was hit.

Sgt. Karl Geschwindt declined to comment on the accident investigation.

East Penn School District Superintendent Michael Schilder says the two victims were students at Jefferson Elementary School in the district. He says the second victim is in critical condition.

The school district will have a crisis management team available throughout the week for students, staff and families.
