Child hit and killed by car after football game in Saginaw

A child was killed after being hit by car Friday night after a football game in the Fort Worth suburb of Saginaw.

It happened around 10:30 p.m. on Blue Mound Road.

Police say 10-year-old Emmanuel Alvarez was hit and killed by a car.

The boy’s 14-year-old cousin, Alexander, says they were waiting for a ride home from the Saginaw football game. But since it was taking too long, they decided to walk home.

Alexander says they made it halfway across to the center turn lane. But then Emmanuel took off running and was hit.

“I ran to him. I grabbed him. He was facing down. I turned him around and I tried speaking to him, but he didn't answer. I checked his pulse, but he wasn't breathing,” said Alexander. “They told me to do mouth to mouth and all that, but I told them I couldn't because he was bleeding from his head and his mouth."

Police say a 16-year-old was driving the car that hit and killed the boy but was not at fault.

Police say Emmanuel was wearing dark clothing when he darted into the street.
