Police

HOPKINTON, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a 13-year-old boy has been struck and killed while riding his bicycle in Hopkinton.

District attorney’s spokeswoman Stephanie Guyotte identified the victim as Shayne Desroches.

Shayne was struck by a sedan around 5 p.m. Wednesday. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

It was not immediately known if the boy was wearing a helmet.

Guyotte says the driver was a 16-year-old girl who was treated at a hospital as a precaution. Her name has not been made public.

The accident is being investigated and no charges have been filed.

    I doubt if wearing a helmet would have made a difference.
