A 7-year-old boy died Tuesday after he was struck by a vehicle Monday on West Pine Avenue, according to a Lompoc Police spokesman. 

Officers responded to a traffic collision shortly before 7 p.m. in the 100 block of West Pine Avenue, where they located a vehicle that had struck the unidentified child, according to Sgt. Sergio Arias. 

The driver of the vehicle remained on scene and cooperated with the investigation. Police did not release the driver's name or provide details on whether or not the driver was arrested, or if drugs and alcohol were involved in the collision. 

Medics rendered first aid to the boy before he was transported to the Lompoc Valley Medical Center emergency room, where medical staff provided aid to the child but were unsuccessful in their lifesaving attempts, according to Arias.
