A 12-year-old boy died Monday after being hit by a car while crossing South Lombard Street near the Barber Mill Road intersection in Clayton.
Gerardo Munoz Galvan and a friend were running across the street from the Alta mobile home park at around 4 p.m., according to town spokeswoman Stacy Beard.
A woman in a four-door Buick was driving southbound when she struck Gerardo, Beard said. His friend was not injured.
Police, fire and EMS responded, and all tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate Gerardo, who lived in the mobile home park.
Officers investigating the incident do not believe the kids saw the car before running across the street. The driver will not be charged, Beard said.
