The girl placed the Nissan Sentra she was driving in reverse and accelerated out of the driveway Friday evening.
The car crossed the road and hit 12-year-old Eric Lozano and his 10-year-old cousin. Lozano was pinned against a home after being hit.
Lewisville police said Lozano was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The 10-year-old boy was hospitalized but was later released.
Police are still investigating the accident.
