2-year-old dies after being hit by car in Woodland

By Benjamin Mullin

A 2-year-old boy was hit by a car and killed at the Bel Air Shopping Center in Woodland this morning in what police are calling an unfortunate accident.

The child, whose identity was not released, was hit outside of a store at 9 a.m. after he ran in front of a car, said Sgt. Tom Davis of the Woodland Police Department. The child, who suffered head trauma, was taken to UC Davis Medical Center, where he died.

The driver of the vehicle that struck the boy, a 67-year-old woman, was not arrested, Davis said. Eyewitnesses said that she did not have enough time to react before she hit the boy, he said.
