Utica police are still investigating a deadly accident where a four year old boy was struck and killed by a car.

City police say Zachary Htoo apparently ran out into the street Monday afternoon to retrieve a ball on Brinkerhoff Avenue and was struck by a car. He was airlifted to a Syracuse hospital where he died from his injuries.

Police say the driver of the car was not at fault and speed was not a factor but their accident reconstruction team is still looking into the deadly accident.
