Investigators say one Southeast Texas boy has died and another is hurt after both were hit by a truck
while rushing to a Halloween party.

The Galveston County Sheriff's Office says the boys jumped from a vehicle and tried to run across a road, to reach the party Monday night at the Port Bolivar (BAW'-luh-vuhr) Volunteer Fire Department.

Maj. Ray Tuttoilmondo (too-leh-MAHN'-doe) says the boys, who weren't wearing Halloween costumes, were struck by an oncoming pickup.

The Galveston County Daily News (http://bit.ly/sqdZ41) reports 12-year-old Ernest Rodriguez was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Tuttoilmondo says 11-year-old Christian Balderrana was hospitalized Tuesday with injuries that are not life-threatening.

Tuttoilmondo says Balderrana's father was driving the boys and tried to turn into the parking lot when they jumped out

.Neither driver was charged.
