4-year-old Utica boy hit by car, killed after chasing ball into street

A 4-year-old Utica boy has died after police say he chased a ball into the street and was hit by a car.

Investigators say Zachary Htoo was playing on the 1500 block Brinckerhoff Avenue at about 5:00 pm Monday when he ran out into the street, chasing a ball.

Htoo was airlifted to Upstate Hospital where he died Tuesday morning.

Investigators say that there does not appear to be any fault to the driver, and speed was not a factor in the accident.
