Officers were dispatched at 6:45 p.m. to Lone Tree Way near Deer Valley Road for a collision involving a pedestrian. When officers arrived the boy had major injuries but then died.

Police said the boy was apparently crossing Lone Tree Way outside of a crosswalk and was hit by a vehicle passing by.

The driver of the vehicle stopped and cooperated with police officers. According to police, it appears impairment did not play a role in the collision.

The boy’s name was not released by police.

A passenger in the vehicle apparently suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital, Steve Hill, a spokesman for the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District, said.

Anyone with information about the collision is asked to call or email Officer Johnsen at (925) 779-6900 Ext 84265 or at ejohnsen@ci.antioch.ca.us.

Lone Tree Way remained closed for several hours between Deer Valley Road and Sagebrush.
