Gizelle Coria, 16, was riding on the back of a BMX-style bike crossing U.S. 31 at East Lakewood Boulevard in Holland Township at about 2:15 a.m. Tuesday. Police said she panicked and jumped off, and was struck by a southbound vehicle.

Coria was taken to a Grand Rapids hospital, where she died later Tuesday, said Sgt. Steve Austin of the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department.

Police said the driver of the bike, 18-year-old Rudy Sanchez, was not hurt.
