The SUV’s estimated speed at the time of impact was 35 mph, said Los Angeles County Fire Department Firefighter/Paramedic John Barrera. Police and fire personnel administered first aid to the boy, who was taken to Whittier Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital, where he died, said Zuhlke. The victim was unconscious when rescuers arrived and did not regain consciousness prior to his death, said Barrera. Investigators at the scene determined the driver was not impaired in any way, Zuhlke said. WHITTIER – A 12-year-old boy was struck and killed by a sport utility vehicle Sunday as he crossed Painter Avenue, officials said. The incident occurred about 12:30 p.m. in the 9000 block of Painter, near Oval Drive, said Whittier police spokesman Jason Zuhlke. The boy was walking north along the east side of Painter prior to the accident, then suddenly darted west across the street, said Zuhlke. The victim ran into northbound traffic on the two-lane road, and into the path of an oncoming Ford SUV, Zuhlke said. “With a deep sense of bereavement, the Whittier Police Department would like to encourage all parents to speak to their children about the importance of pedestrian safety,” said Zuhlke. – Brian Day160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
