PORTLAND -- An 11-year-old girl was killed Saturday night when she fell out of a party bus window as it made a turn.

Portland Police spokesman Lt. Robert King said family and friends were on the bus to celebrate a Quinceanera, a Latin celebration for when a girl turns 15 years old.

This happened about 6:30 p.m. Saturday as the bus was making a turn from Southwest 1st Avenue onto Southwest Harrison Street.  The girl died from her injuries.

Lt. King said there's no indication alcohol was involved,  and  he called the incident a tragic accident.
