A one-year-old child has died in Richmond after being struck by a car on Sunday.

Around 11:50 a.m. Richmond Police received a call about a pedestrian versus vehicle collision, only to find the victim was a one-year-old boy when they got there.

The accident happened in the area of Cutting Boulevard and South 17th Street.

Officials say the boy was immediately taken to the hospital, where he died from his injuries.

The driver of the car fled the scene driving eastbound on Cutting.

Authorities located the adult woman driver and arrested her a few miles away from the accident. 

Contra Costa Coroner has identified the one-year-old as Noah Cordier from Sacramento.

Lieutenant Matt Stonebreaker with the Richmond Police Department says that Noah ran out into the street, getting away from whomever he was with.

The suspect’s identity has not been released, but is expected it will be shared when the District Attorney files charges by Wednesday.

Stonebreaker is unsure if there was an indication of the accident being DUI.
