A 12-year-old boy died in a solo-vehicle crash in Sacramento Tuesday evening.
According to Sacramento police Officer Justin Brown, a car slammed into a pole on West El Camino Avenue at Stonecreek Drive just after 8 p.m.
The victim, identified by the Sacramento County corner as Elias Joel Urrutia, was an occupant in the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene, Brown said.
One other person was transported to the hospital. That person's condition was unknown.
Brown said the cause of the crash wasn't known. Investigators would be looking into whether there was a mechanical issue with the vehicle.
