An 11-year-old boy died Thursday when the vehicle he was riding in on Interstate 5 near the Sacramento River was struck from behind.

The California Highway Patrol reported that a vehicle driven by Caleb Cobb Huiskens, 35, of Grass Valley was southbound on I-5 between Woodland and Sacramento International Airport about 4:45 p.m. Thursday when he rear-ended another vehicle that was stopped in traffic.

The Woodland boy, who was in the vehicle struck by Huiskens, died at the hospital from his injuries. Two others in the same vehicle suffered minor injuries.

Huiskens escaped injury, according to the CHP.
