Columbus police say a toddler was killed and two more children were seriously hurt late Wednesday when the motorized bike they were riding collided with a pickup truck.

The accident reportedly happened on Taylor Ave, near I-670 on the North Side as the children were pulling out of an alley into a street.

The boy killed was identified as two-year-old Deandre Pruitt.

The 11-year-old driving the motorized bike and a 9-year-old passenger were hospitalized with serious injuries. The truck driver was unharmed and is not expected to face charges.
