A 4-year-old East Baltimore girl was killed yesterday when she ran into a truck while attempting to cross the street in the block where she lived, police said.

And a 5-year-old boy from southwest Baltimore, who was struck by a car Wednesday in Waverly, died of his injuries last night, police said.

The boy, who lived in the 2500 block of McHenry St., was injured when he and his half-brother were hit by a car as they attempted to cross the 2800 block of Greenmount Ave., police said.

About 4:15 p.m. yesterday, LaToya Nicole Butler was crossing the 1500 block of N. Washington St. when she ran into the side of a northbound truck, said Officer Earl Borman of the traffic investigation unit.

The driver, Jesse James Williams, 57, of the 800 block of N. Collington Ave., told police he saw the girl a instant before the collision.

In the Wednesday accident, police said Carlos Eugene Hicks, 5, and his half-brother, Eugene Antonio Hicks, 10, of the 400 block of E. 28th St., were attempting to cross the northbound lane on Greenmount Ave. about 5 p.m. when they were hit by a 1984 Buick. The car was driven by Charles Eugene Hebron, 20, of the 400 block of Main St. in Turners Station, Baltimore County.

The impact threw Eugene into the southbound lane, where he was hit by a red Volkswagen Jetta, whose driver stopped but then drove off, police said.

Carlos died of extensive head injuries shortly before 10 o'clock last night, police said.
