A sexagenarian woman walking across the street was killed when she was struck by a 16-year-old teen who was riding his bicycle to band practice. The 6:51 a.m. incident happened on the 500 block of Palisades Drive, just north of Sunset Blvd, according to the LA Fire Department who transferred the teen to hospital.

So far, police still do not know how fast the teen was traveling, but they do know it was still somewhat dark outside. They also are unsure if the woman "suffered fatal injuries when she was struck or when she fell to the ground," the LA Times reports.
