An 8-year-old boy riding his bike to school was struck and killed by an SUV Wednesday morning, police said.

The accident was reported about 8 a.m. in the intersection of Choctaw Drive and Iroquois Road, near Sequoia Elementary School, Westminster police Cpl. Van Woodson said.

The boy, Andrew Brumback, was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, Woodson said. He was pronounced dead at Huntington Beach Medical Center.

The 47-year-old driver of the 2005 Ford Freestyle SUV, identified as Anita Cherry, of Westminster, remained at the scene. No arrests have been made and alcohol does not appear to have been a factor, Woodson said.

Andrew was a third-grader at the school who was with his older sister when the fatal accident occurred, said Trish Montgomery, a spokeswoman for the Westminster School District.

School staff sent a letter to parents notifying them of the incident.
“This is an absolutely heartbreaking loss for students and staff at Sequoia Elementary,” said Sequoia principal Tammy Steel. “Andrew will forever be remembered as an energetic, outgoing, and entertaining little boy. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
