Loved ones mourn 7-year-old Colton boy fatally struck …
A family is grieving after a 7-year-old Southern California boy was struck and killed by a truck as he arrived for football practice. Jayce Board was helping his mother set up for a cheerleading fundraiser earlier on Thursday before heading to football practice at Colton High School.
When he exited his car and began crossing the street towards the high school, another vehicle came around and struck the boy in the road. He remained hospitalized for two days before he died on Saturday morning. Community members, teammates and loved ones gathered outside Colton High School for a vigil on Saturday night to remember the young boy whose life was taken too soon.
