An 11-year-old boy who was struck by two vehicles on Bruceville Road on Monday evening has died.

According to the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office, Moses Galang of Sacramento died Thursday morning.

The accident occurred about 5:23 p.m. at Bruceville Road and Cosumnes River Boulevard.

Witnesses told police that Galang and a 12-year-old boy were running southbound on Bruceville Road and crossed Cosumnes River Boulevard in the crosswalk. The 12-year-old made it across, but Galang was struck by a vehicle that was eastbound on Cosumnes River Boulevard. That vehicle stopped and remained at the scene, but the boy also was struck by a second vehicle that had just turned east on Cosumnes River Boulevard from Bruceville Road. The second vehicle did not stop at the scene after the boy went under the vehicle, but instead continued eastbound, police said.

Officers were unable to locate the vehicle, which was described as a white or light-colored late 1970s to early 1980s Ford or Chevy-type full-size van with a raised roof cap. The roof cap was described as a camper or ice cream-type van top that allows the occupant to stand up inside the vehicle.

Anyone with information regarding the vehicle or driver is asked to call the Police Department’s dispatch center at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357, or text a tip to 274637. Enter SACTIP, followed by the tip information.
