HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say a 5-year-old girl who was out trick-or-treating has died after darting into a street and being struck by a vehicle.

Police on Friday did not immediately release the name of the child. Investigators say the girl apparently ran ahead of some family members Thursday night and stepped into the path of the vehicle.

Houston police say the driver remained at the scene following the accident. The girl was transported to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Further details weren’t immediately released.
