Man run down 50 years after killing girl in hit-and-run

Hero Who Died Saving Kids From Car At A Baseball Game Had A Dark Secret Man run down 50 years after killing girl in hit-and-run

A Vietnam War veteran who confessed five years ago to killing a 4-year-old girl in a 1968 hit-and-run was trying to protect children when a woman drove her auto onto a little league baseball field in ME during a game, striking and killing him. Some 400 miles away, the news is bringing relief to one family, reports the Washington Post. Carol Sharrow, of Sanford, Maine, allegedly blew through a gate and drove onto the field at Goodall Park, sending players and bystanders scattering for safety, police said.

A 51-year-old woman was arrested in Friday's incident, which is apparently unconnected with Parkhurst's dark past.

But Parkhurst, who admitted in 2013 he was behind the wheel of his 1962 Buick Special with his brother Lenny after a night of drinking, only came forward after the statute of limitations had run out the crime, The Post-Standard in Syracuse has reported.

Darlene Ashby McCann, the sister who was with Carolee when she was killed, says her family never received an apology from Parkhurst.

She says her father died never knowing who killed Carolee. I truly am. The same thing that happened to my sister happened to him.

"It's like a complete circle now, he went out the way he took my sister out".

Sanford police Detective Sgt. Matthew Jones said Sharrow has a drunken-driving conviction in ME and an aggravated drunken-driving conviction in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Parkhurst said he didn't know why the police hadn't questioned him again in 1968.

Parkhurst died on the way to hospital, and no one else was injured.

"Now it is time to move on", she said.

Police, however, were skeptical of his story.

Mr Parkhurst said he didn't see what he hit and did not stop. A motorist who witnessed the accident later told Fulton police he believed a teddy bear had been hit and thrown. Parkhurst went off to Vietnam, and the case was forgotten when he returned.

For years the case went unsolved before police decided to make a post on Facebook looking for tips back in 2012.

Sharrow's psychological examination will probably be conducted over the next couple of months, Ruffner said, but the results won't be made public unless they become an issue in the case - if Ruffner tries to argue that his client is not competent to stand trial or not criminally responsible for her actions, for example.

"I personally think the best thing for these boys is to get back on the ball field", he said. "I know it's wrong, but I am relieved".

"While I drove through the city of Fulton, I heard a thud", Parkhurst wrote in his confession, in which he estimated he had around three beers. "I did not see what I hit". He didn't remember hitting the brakes.

"It had to be the strangest twist of fate I have ever heard", former Fulton police officer Russ Johnson said.

"I saw the vehicle pull out of the gate right over there and this guy had some kids with him", Justin Cliffton, who had been playing basketball nearby when the deadly incident occurred, told News Center Maine.

"I know my mum would have been grateful that children were saved", Ms McCann told the Portland Press Herald. "Sometime I may be able to forgive him, but not right now".
