A teenage girl has died after being struck by a dump truck this afternoon in McKeesport, the Allegheny County medical examiner's office said.

Alyson Higdon, 14, of McKeesport died at 8:19 p.m. Children’s Hospital, the medical examiner's office said.

She had been flown there by medical helicopter for treatment of critical injuries after the accident at the intersection of Oneil Boulevard and Hartman Street around 3:15 p.m.

Allegheny Police Lt. Andrew Schurman says Alyson was following other students and crossing a street when she was hit, and her view may have been obstructed by a school bus.

An autopsy will be performed Friday.
