A 16-year-old girl was killed after she was struck by a car in Delta on Sunday night, Delta police announced Tuesday.
Police said Ariel Davis and another person were walking in the area of 1714 H Road just before 10 p.m. Sunday when Davis was struck by a car traveling west on H Road.
Davis initially was taken to Delta County Memorial Hospital, then later transferred to St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction. Police said she was pronounced dead at St. Mary’s at 9:30 p.m. Monday.
