A 4-year-old boy was hit and killed while riding his scooter in a parking lot Wednesday evening, CHP says.
According to the CHP report, the accident happened around 7:43 p.m. in the Carlsberg Park parking lot near 8th Street and Kentucky Avenue.
Sergio Calvo, a 30-year-old Riverbank resident, is said to have been leaving the parking lot in his 2006 Chevy 2500 HD pickup truck when he felt an impact. He immediately got out of his truck and found the boy lying on the ground.
Calvo was about to pick the boy off the ground when the boy’s family instead took him. Emergency personnel later took the boy to Memorial Medical Center, but the boy was later pronounced dead.
Investigators do not believe that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the accident.
Riverbank Police have asked CHP to take over the investigation.
