SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Sparks police say a 5-year-old boy was hit and killed by an SUV after he and another child ran across the street.

Authorities say they responded to Baring Boulevard a little before 8 p.m. Monday and found the boy lying in the roadway unconscious.

The child was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, where he succumbed to his injuries. His name hasn’t yet been released.

Investigators say it appears the boy and another child were running across the road when the SUV hit him. The driver has been cooperating with the investigation, and police say it doesn’t appear alcohol was involved in the accident.
