Memorial services continue for boy killed by SUV

Memorial services continue in Pelham Bay for Ethan Villavicencio, who was killed by an out-of-control car at Kennedy's Chicken and Sandwiches.

Toy trucks, teddy bears and candles are lined outside the Westchester Avenue eatery where the 7-year-old died.

Surveillance video appears to show the driver of the car backing up over a curb and speeding into the restaurant.

Police say that's when Ethan, his father and younger sister were hit.

The Bronx District Attorney's Office said Ethan had a collapsed lung as a result of the crash and was pronounced dead of a cardiac arrest.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as 73-year-rold Kwasi Oduro. He was charged Friday with leaving the scene of an accident, and was released after posting $10,000 bail.

Ethan's father and younger sister are reportedly in stable condition at Jacobi Medical Center.
