6-year-old boy struck by car dies at hospital

A 6-year-old boy died Friday, days after he was hit by a car while riding a scooter near his home.

Yves Zamora had been at Tampa General Hospital since Tuesday. That evening, he was riding a Huffy Micro Scooter in the driveway of the University Area Harvest Hope Center at 13704 N 20th St. He rolled into the road in front of a Nissan Xterra that was headed south, according to Hillsborough sheriff's deputies.

The driver, Jack Bradley, 65, of Tampa, swerved left, but hit Zamora, who was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Early Friday morning, Zamora died.

The incident remains under investigation. Bradley is not facing any charges, deputies said.
