On August 23, 2010, at 7:18 p.m., Rancho Cordova Police Department officers responded to the report that a child had been struck by a vehicle in the 2500 block of El Cerco Court.

When officers arrived they learned fire department paramedics had transported the 2-year-old boy to a local hospital. At 7:41 p.m. officers were notified the child had been pronounced dead.

Investigators have learned the child was struck by a friend of the child’s father who had just dropped off the father at his home. The friend, a 42-year-old male, was driving a full-size pick up truck and did not see the child who had run in front of the truck. The driver was also transported to a local hospital with complaints of chest pain.

The RCPD Major Accident Investigation Team will investigate this fatal accident and attempt to determine how it occurred. Anyone who may have witnessed the accident, and who did not talk to officers at the scene, is urged to call RCPD Traffic Unit detective Ron Brazell at (916) 875-9623.
