By: Shawn Magrath

COLUMBUS – The Chenango County District Attorney's Office has yet to bring additional charges against a Utica man who ran over and killed a pedestrian on State Route 8 at the Unadilla Motocross event over the weekend.

On Friday, New York State Police arrested 31-year-old Eward D. Burnett of Utica on two felony charges of driving while ability impaired with a child 15 or under as the passenger, and a single felony charge of vehicular assault in the second degree.

Troopers are collaborating with the Chenango County District Attorney's Office to determine whether additional charges are warranted.

Police say the victim, 20-year-old Jonathan Mayzak of South Carolina, succumbed to his injuries shortly after 1:30 p.m. Sunday. An autopsy will be performed at the Onondaga County Medial Examiner's Office.
