West Traffic Detectives Investigates the Death of a 2-Year-old Child

Los Angeles:  A child was killed on Saturday, when the driver of a Yukon GMC truck struck him in a car wash parking lot.

On April 11, 2009, at around 1:00 p.m., 2-year-old Luis Rojas, and his 24-year-old brother, were standing near their car at carwash parking lot located at 5th Street and Vermont Avenue in Los Angeles.  

Young Rojas ran around the passenger side of the vehicle towards the back of the car when he was hit by a 2003 GMC Yukon driven by a 28-year-old resident of Los Angeles.

Rojas was transported to a local hospital by Los Angeles City Fire Paramedics where he died shortly after his arrival.

There have been no arrests, and no arrests are anticipated, in this case.  It is being investigated as a tragic accident.
