An 11-year-old boy was hit and killed by a car in Central Fresno last night. He died just blocks away from his school.
The accident happened just after 7 o'clock at the intersection of Clinton and Warren avenues. It was dark and there's not crosswalk at that location.
Two cars were involved in the accident. The driver of one of the vehicles pulled over and is cooperating with police. Officers have not located the other car involved.
People living nearby say drivers are not aware enough of children. The speed limit on Clinton avenue is 40 miles per hour. Lester Cox Jr. was a student at Homan elementary school, which is just blocks away from the scene of the crash.
