2 Auburn boys died after being hit by vehicle: CHP

Two juveniles lost their lives after a vehicle hit them in Auburn on Sunday, a spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol (CHP) confirmed.

Officer David Martinez from the CHP Auburn office said the deadly crash occurred near Grass Valley Highway and Shale Ridge Lane at around 5:15 p.m. yesterday.

Three boys were walking southbound on the northbound side of Highway 49 in the city Sunday evening when they hit by a pickup truck. One lane was temporarily closed on the southbound highway.

One of the two victims died at the scene, while the second boy was rushed to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries sometime later. The third boy was luckily not injured in the crash.

Authorities didn’t reveal the names of the victims. They just said the three boys aged in range of 12 to 14 years.

They also declined to disclose the identity of the driver of the pickup truck. However, they just described the driver as a 62-year-old man. He was immediately taken into custody for questioning and a sobriety test. The incident remains under investigation.
