DOVER, Del. (AP) — Police say a man under the influence of alcohol hit three people standing on a sidewalk in Dover, killing a 6-year-old girl.
Dover Police said in a statement Thursday that as 26-year-old David Randall pulled his Ford Focus into a space at a condominium complex Wednesday evening, the car sped forward onto the sidewalk. Police say the car hit 6-year-old Anya Jackson, her mother and a family friend, pinning the girl against a building.
The girl was taken to a hospital, where police say she died. The two others were treated for injuries that police say were not life-threatening.
Police say Randall will be charged with first-degree vehicular homicide, two counts of second-degree vehicular assault and driving under the influence.
