9-Year-Old Dies after Being Hit by Car in Stockton

STOCKTON -- A young girl has died after she was hit by a car Tuesday in Stockton.

Around 3:40 p.m., the 9-year-old was hit while crossing Carolyn Weston Boulevard near Ishi Goto Street.

A passerby performed CPR on the girl until medical personnel arrived. She has been flown to the UC Davis Medical Center where she later died from her injuries.

The driver stayed at the scene and the car was later towed away.

The girl was later identified as Brianna Moua, who was just days away from being celebrated for being on her school's honor roll.

"When she meets new people, she just goes up to them and talks to them. She is kind of shy but she overcomes that. She loves traveling with me. Even when I just go to the store, she’ll tag along. She just always wants to be active," Brianna's mother, Debbie Cha, told FOX40. "She likes trying new stuff. She’s just an energetic, outgoing person that everyone can relate to and enjoy hanging around them."

Brianna's mother, Debbie Cha, was draped in her daughter's favorite blanket Wednesday at a growing memorial at the intersection.

"It means a lot. I’ve been here for 10 years and I’ve never been in a community base before so this shows a lot of support and what the community is about," Cha said.

Meanwhile, neighbors say they've been calling for something to be done to make the intersection safer for years.

"It’s been horrible. With this crosswalk. I think that with this trail, they should do something about it to make it safer for the kids to cross," Cha said.

Police are now looking for people who were in two cars seen at the scene. One is a late 90's to early 00's silver Mercedes and a late 90's to early 00's Isuzu Rodeo or Honda Passport.

Brianna's family has launched a GoFundMe campaign.
