13-year-old Dies after Crash with Moline Police Car


A 13-year-old bike rider is dead after being hit by a Moline police car.

The Moline Police Department says shortly before 3 pm Tuesday, an officer was responding to a call about a disturbance near 41st Street and 12th Avenue.

While driving south on 34th Street, the squad car struck the boy riding a bicycle. He was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The police department called the Illinois State Police to take over the investigation. Moline police will also conduct a separate investigation. And the officer driving the police car has been placed on administrative leave.
