ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- An 11-year-old girl has died after a scooter accident in southwest Florida.

St. Petersburg police say Sonia Savage and a friend were riding scooters Friday when Sonia didn't look both ways before crossing the street. She crashed into a truck and was run over by the left rear wheel of the vehicle.

The girl was taken to the hospital where she later died from her injuries. Savage celebrated her 11th birthday on Wednesday.

Police say alcohol was not a factor and there are no pending charges against the driver.
