JUNCTION CITY, Ore. (AP) - Police say a boy has died after being hit by a full-size pickup in a Junction City Safeway parking lot.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1Ohv0To ) that Junction City police say the truck hit the boy around 6:45 p.m. Saturday. They have not yet released the boy’s name and age or the name of the man driving the pickup, although Sgt. Dan Miller says both are locals.

Miller says the driver cooperated with police after the accident and may have had an obscured view when he hit the boy.

Police say the pickup was moving very slowly when it hit the kid.

Miller says an Oregon State Police accident reconstruction team is now investigating. The boy’s body is in the custody of the Lane County medical examiner.
