Update: Boy, 3, dies after hit by car in Citrus Heights

A 3-year-old boy died this evening after he was struck by a vehicle at Sunrise Boulevard and Lawrence Avenue in Citrus Heights.

The accident was reported about 5:30 p.m. When police officers arrived they administered emergency aid, including CPR, until Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District crews arrived, according to a Police Department news release. The child was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police said the child's name was being withheld at the request of his family.

Traffic investigators determined that a 2004 Kia sedan traveling south on Sunrise at Lawrence struck the child. The youngster was walking westbound from the center median across the southbound lanes of Sunrise Boulevard, according to the news release.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured and was reported cooperating with police in the investigation. The circumstances surrounding the collision are under investigation.

Sunrise Boulevard remains closed in both directions between Woodmore Oaks and Sun Hill drives.
