A 7-year-old Texas Township boy is dead after he was struck by a vehicle Tuesday afternoon.

MLive reports that the accident took place around 3pm Tuesday on South 12th St near an elementary school in Portage. It appears that the boy had been taking part in a summer camp provided by the Portage Public Schools, when he was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street in a crosswalk. The boy was taken to Bronson hospital, but died later that evening.

The school does plan to provide counselling and support to those affected by this accident. This crash continues to be investigated, but police are saying that it does not appear alcohol was involved.
