A 13-year-old Copperas Cove girl died Saturday night after she was struck by a pick up truck just outside the city limits.

A Department of Public Safety report said Alyssa Martinez, 13, was taken at about 8:40 p.m. Saturday from the scene on Farm-to-Market road 1113 to a Killeen hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

The DPS trooper’s report showed the girl was struck by a Ford F-150 pick up truck as she tried to cross the highway about a tenth of a mile west of the city limits.

The report showed the victim failed to yield to the passing truck.

The driver of the pick up was not injured.

Martinez was taken to Crawford-Bowers Funeral Home where arrangements were pending.
