An absolute tragedy in Southern Erie County over the weekend. An eleven year old girl died after an accident on a dirt bike.

According to reports, Sidney Sidote was on her bike with proper safety gear when she collided with a car on New Oregon Rd in North Collins.

Channel 4 reports that:

When the accident occurred, officials say Sidote was trying to cross the road, but ran into the side of a passing vehicle.

She died at Oishei Children's Hospital after first being taken to Bertrand Chaffee Hospital.

Our prayers are with Sidney's family and friends and the entire Eden-North Collins community. i have said many times in the past that that area of Western New York is like family. I want to personally extend my condolences to the family and let you know that my family is praying for you during this incredibly difficult time.
