UPDATE: A 13-year-old Cresskill Middle School student was struck and killed on his bicycle by a tractor-trailer on Grant Avenue this morning.
The seventh-grader was pronounced dead at the scene of the 8:20 a.m. crash, Detective Jason Lanzilotti told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

He was riding east in the street on Grand Avenue, wearing a helmet, when the tractor-trailer struck him while turning from Jefferson Avenue in the same direction, Lanzilotti said.

Several callers summoned police, he said.

The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Fatal Accident Unit, the Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification and the county medical examiner joined Cresskill police and EMS at the scene.

Detectives were interviewing the driver, who was hospitalized for shock.

They also interviewed witnesses at the scene, a few blocks from the school.
