Middle School Student Hit and Killed

HENDERSON -- A bike ride to school turned deadly for a 13-year-old Nathaniel Miller Monday. He was riding his bike to Brown Junior High School in Henderson when he was hit and killed by a minivan.

Police say the accident happened around 7 a.m. at the corner of Pueblo Boulevard and Warm Springs. Police say Miller was riding his bike on the sidewalk and was trying to cross the intersection when he was struck by a white Toyota minivan. 

Henderson Police say witnesses rushed to help the teen but he was declared dead at the scene. The teen was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

The driver, 56-year-old Ki Fung, has not been charged. Police say alcohol and speed were not a factor in the case and the driver is cooperating in the ongoing investigation.

Police are urging both bike riders and drivers to use extra caution when on the roads.

"Drivers need to be extremely careful around school zones and around schools when children are present. Drivers need to look out for the children and the children also need to pay attention to where the cars are," said Keith Paul with Henderson Police.

The Clark County School District says grief counselors are on campus to help students deal with the loss.
