8 Year Old Michigan Girl Taking Food To Homeless Struck By Car, Dies

 GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Police say an 8-year-old girl has died after being struck by a vehicle while crossing a roadway in western Michigan to feed homeless people in a park.
The crash happened Tuesday night near a bridge over the Grand River in Grand Rapids. Officers who responded found Nevaeh Alston unconscious in the roadway. She was taken to a hospital, where police say she died.

Relatives say Nevaeh, who was with her mother, was carrying fresh fruit. Her uncle was across the street.

Nevaeh was a student at Kent Hills Elementary School. Principal Benjamin Rogers says in a letter to parents that she would be “greatly missed.”

Police say the driver of the vehicle is a Grand Rapids resident and neither alcohol nor speed appeared to be a factor.
