Williams Elementary Mourns the Tragic Loss of a Student

[slideshow_deploy id=’64099′]

A seven-year-old Williams Elementary Student died after being struck by a car on his way to school.

The Williams Police Department reported that at approximately 7:45 AM on Tuesday, September 2, 2014, a 20-year-old Williams woman was driving east on E Street, near the Twelfth Street intersection, in a 1995 Chevrolet Corsica, where she became blinded by the sun rising from the east.

Subsequently the driver lost visibility and hit a seven-year-old, Christian Orosco and his older brother as they were crossing the roadway, within the crosswalk, on their way to school.

Williams Police Officers, Williams Fire personnel, Enloe Paramedics, Colusa County Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol arrived to render aid.

Orosco sustained significant injuries from the collision and was transported by air ambulance to U.C. Davis Medical Center in Sacramento.

Due to the severity of his injuries, the boy did not survive.

The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office is conducting the coroner’s investigation.

The older brother, who was also struck by the car, had minor injuries; however, declined medical treatment and was released to a parent.

The driver, who was visibly shaken and distraught, is fully cooperating with the investigation, which is ongoing said the Williams Police Department.

At this time, alcohol nor drugs appear to be a contributing factor.

The Williams Unified School District was notified and have made counselors available to all students.

The Williams Police Department urges drivers to be aware of their surroundings and speeds, especially in school zones.

“Our thoughts go out the families of those involved at this very sad and difficult time,” said SGT Ed Anderson of the Williams Police Department.

If anyone has information regarding this investigation, please call the Williams Police Department at (530) 473-2661.

A memorial fund has been setup with US Bank in Williams under the care of Jorge Orosco; to make a donation, use reference number 157502195306.

Also a ‘GoFundMe’ crowdsourcing fundraiser has also been setup to help the family with memorial services; to make a donation, visit this link.
