13-Year-Old Struck by Vehicle in Rancho Cordova

Shortly after 9:30 PM on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, Rancho Cordova Police Officers responded to a traffic collision involving a pedestrian at the intersection of Zinfandel Drive and International Drive. When officers arrived, they discovered a 13-year-old female with injuries lying in the middle of the intersection and requested the Fire department respond to assist. The Sacramento Metro Fire Department later arrived and began to render medical aid. The juvenile was transported by ambulance to a local area hospital with serious injuries.

Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the scene a short time later to assist patrol officers, interview subjects, and gather evidence. Based on the investigation, it was determined the juvenile was struck by an SUV while crossing the crosswalk. This driver stayed at the scene. After the initial collision, the juvenile, who was still in the roadway, was struck by a silver sedan. The silver sedan fled the area without speaking to officers.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact the Rancho Cordova Police Department Traffic Unit at 916-875-9623.
