6-Year-Old Upland Boy Dies in DUI Crash at White and McKinley Avenues
POMONA, CA (May 7, 2019) – A child was killed following a DUI head-on crash Tuesday afternoon in Pomona, according to the Pomona Police Department.
The fatal crash happened around 4:30 p.m. at White and McKinley avenues, just near the Pomona Fairplex.
Police said a blue GMC Yukon was heading northbound when it swerved over the center divider on White Avenue and traveled into southbound traffic, hitting a gold Ford Ranger head-on.
The child in one of the involved vehicles was pronounced dead at the scene. He was later identified as a 6-year-old Julian Anthony George of Upland. It was not clear whether the child was in a car seat.
The two drivers, both suspected of DUI, were transported and treated for injuries at a nearby hospital. One of them was in critical condition.
Witnesses say a good Samaritan was also injured running toward the crash trying to save the child.
A GoFundMe account has been created to help the George family to help with funeral and medical expenses.
