A 14-year-old girl was struck and killed by car Friday morning as she crossed the street about 7 a.m.

The 33-year-old driver of the vehicle which hit her was northbound on Gratiot Avenue when the teen was attempting to cross the road from eastbound to westbound 7 Mile Road.

There is speculation the girl was walking to school.

The driver told police he didn't immediately realize he'd hit anyone until he looked in his rearview mirror.

The deadly accident is still under investigation.
