  • Man run down on baseball field, 50 years after killing girl in hit-and-run

A woman with a history of drink-driving convictions has hit and killed a Vietnam War veteran who confessed five years ago to killing a four-year-old girl in an alcohol-fuelled 1968 hit-and-run, police say.

"On the field of our very own Goodall Park, members of our local Babe Ruth League were full fledge into a competitive ball game, only to be interrupted by an unimaginable incident", they added in a second post, requesting that fans wear their jerseys to the next game to "show how strong not only the baseball community is, but how the City of Sanford can also come together when something so tragic invades something that is a piece of all of us".

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

"It's hard to believe and I'm thinking maybe she had a mental illness that I didn't know about and if so she hit rock bottom", she said.

On Monday Sharrow, who has previous drink driving convictions, did not speak or enter a plea when she faced court.

Douglas Parkhurst was killed Friday, June 1, after a auto driven by Carol Sharrow, 52, erratically drove through a fence and onto a baseball field while a youth game was in session at Goodall Park in Sanford.

Facebook fends off new NYT charges over data access
Meanwhile, Facebook said it started winding down the partnerships in April, as they were no longer needed to serve users. The company claims that these private APIs were "tightly controlled" in a statement posted on the Facebook newsroom.

Several people rushed to Parkhurst's side once the scene was safe and rendered aid to the 68-year-old, who died en route to the hospital due to the injuries he had sustained. Parkhurst was interviewed for two hours, but denied playing a part in the fatal accident. "I don't know where I hit that thing ..."

Parkhurst finally confessed to the crime in 2013, knowing the statute of limitations had expired and he could not be prosecuted.

In his four-page confession obtained by the Syracuse Post-Standard during its reporting about the case, Parkhurst said he and his brother had been drinking before he hit the girl. "It sounded like I hit a dog", Parkhurst wrote.

He said his brother was passed out on the back seat of the auto at the time of the collision.

McCann said she feels relieved with the news of Parkhurst's death. She could hardly be seen, with Ruffner and court officers standing between her and observers. I did not stop.

"I know in my heart and I am 99.9 percent sure I hit that little girl with my 1962 tan Buick Special", he wrote.

Germany’s Merkel to work with Italy’s populist new govt
Most Eastern European states have shunned the deal, leaving countries like Greece and Italy complaining of unfair burdens. For example, he is calling for the creation a eurozone budget and a eurozone finance minister.

Parkhurst left NY and moved to ME after he confessed to the hit-and-run, and reportedly never apologized to McCann or her family for what he did. "I am oh so sorry". "I wish they did and I would have told them the truth".

Parkhurst said he didn't know why the police hadn't questioned him again in 1968. He moved to ME and faced no consequences.

Police continued to press Parkhurst and his family. Sharrow is being held at York County Jail.

"The man who admitted responsibility for killing little Carolee is now dead", Johnson said.

A man who was behind the wheel in a deadly hit-and-run in Fulton almost 50 years ago, has lost his life in an eerily similar way.
