A 2-year-old boy is dead Sunday after he was hit by a vehicle in North Long Beach, and died at a hospital a short time later.

It happened at 8 p.m. Saturday near Atlantic Avenue and Artesia Boulevard, said Long Beach police Lt. Megan Zabel.

“It appears it was a tragic accident at this point,” Zabel said.

An investigation was underway to determine what led to the child being in an area where he could be struck by the vehicle, she said.

The driver remained at the scene and was cooperating with investigators, Zabel said.

The child’s name was not released.
