A speeding local police car without lights or siren struck and killed Bhakta as she crossed the street. In June 2013 the family settled with the city for $300K, noting that the 12-year-old had been tested for drugs but the officer at fault had not been. The same officer struck and seriously injured another pedestrian in a June 2012 high speed chase.
