A boy killed Sunday in a motor vehicle accident has been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner's office as Edward Hill, 12, of Elk Grove.

The boy was riding a bike and crossing with a friend at Bond Road and Elk Crest Drive when he was involved in a collision with a pickup truck pulling a camper trailer, said Sgt. Scott French of the Elk Grove Police Department.

It's not clear exactly how the accident happened, but the truck driver is not suspected of any wrongdoing, French said. The boy was hit by the side and the front of the trailer but not the truck, he said.

The boy might have been trying to get in between the truck and the trailer when it was stopped, French said.

Medical personnel who happened to be in the area tried to revive the boy. He was brought to UC Davis Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 11:38 a.m. Sunday.
