A 3-year-old girl who was struck by a vehicle in the Sears parking lot at the Somersville Towne Center Mall in Antioch has been identified as Angela Nguyen, a Brentwood resident, according to the Contra Costa County coroners office.

On Tuesday, a memorial at a tree near where the crash occurred was created and according to the mall, a moment of silence was held.

The mall issued a statement saying, “Our heart, our thoughts and our prayers go out to the family.”

According to Antioch Police, the incident occurred Monday approximately 7:32 pm in the 2600 block of Somersville Road on a report of a vehicle collision involving a vehicle vs. a pedestrian.

Upon arrival, Antioch Police Officers located a 3-year-old female juvenile in the parking lot of Sears non-responsive. Life saving measures were started until relieved by medical and fire personnel.  The juvenile was transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced deceased.

Antioch Police Traffic Investigators responded to the scene to conduct the investigation.  Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in this collision.  The driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation.

  1. How devastating to lose a child 😭 Prayers going up for the family and friends of this precious child for much needed comfort and peace that only God himself can truly give. My heart aches for your enormous lose. God be with you all.

    • It is very devastating. Not only for the loss of a little one but for the driver as well. I can’t imagine living with the fact that I killed a baby girl. 🙁 I’ll bet the person will think about this every single day forever.

  2. This is beyond belief! How did this happen? In a parking lot where cars usually drive slowly? Was the driver distracted while looking for a parking spot? I’ve seen people not paying attention looking all over the place instead of watching people crossing! When I am in a mall parking lot, I won’t go faster than 5 mph.

  3. Prays to the family. It was blackout in Antioch at that time and it was pitch black and the 3yr was walking behind the mother. Prayer for all🙏🏽

  4. That sears parking lot is incredibly dark at night. It doesnt have lights like the parking lot by the mall main entrance does. About a month ago I was there after dark and I almost backed into a man that I didnt see passing behind my car. I even told my husband that someone was going to end up getting hit in that parking lot at night. My prayers are with this family and this driver during this devastating time
