HOUSTON (AP) - Investigators say one boy has been killed and another hurt in a Houston-area hit-and-run accident as the youngsters chased a ball into a street.

Harris County deputies are searching for the driver of a pickup truck after Thursday night’s accident that left a 5-year-old boy dead. Authorities say a younger boy was injured and transported to a hospital.

Deputies say the boys were at a park when a ball went over a fence and into a road. The boys slipped under the fence. Authorities say the truck struck the children, then sped away.

Names of the boys weren’t immediately released.
