A 16-year-old girl died Nov. 2 after she was hit by a car near Yuma and Tuthill roads in Buckeye, officials said.

The teen, identified by family on a GoFundMe page as Chloe Schneider, was riding her bike along the roadway when she was struck by the vehicle, said Sgt. Jason Weeks, a spokesman with the Buckeye Police Department.

Officers responded at about 6:20 p.m. and found Chloe with extensive injuries. She was transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead, Weeks said.

The driver of the vehicle, a 22-year-old Buckeye resident, remained at the scene and cooperated fully with investigators, he said.

The Buckeye Police Department Traffic Enforcement Unit is investigating the collision. Impairment was not a factor in the crash, Weeks said.

A fundraiser has been set up at gofundme.com/chloes-service-fund to help the family with funeral expenses.
