Car Careens Onto Field During Boys' Baseball Game, Killing 1

Carol Sharrow

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.

The Portland Press-Herald reported that Parkhurst confessed five years ago to a 1968 hit-and-run that left a 4-year-old girl dead. Parkhurst himself confessed to a deadly hit-and-run in 2013, bringing some answers but little solace to the family of Carolee Ashby, a 4-year-old killed on October 31, 1968, as she walked to a store in Fulton, New York, with her then 15-year-old sister to buy birthday candles for the teenager's cake.

The only reason we know Parkhurst was responsible for this crime is because he confessed ... By this stage the statute of limitations had long run out.

In his four-page confession obtained by the Syracuse Post-Standard, Mr Parkhurst said he and his brother had been drinking before he hit the girl.

In 2013, Parkhurst waited until after the statute of limitation had run out before he walked into a Fulton, N.Y., police station and admitted being behind the wheel of the auto that killed Carolee Ashby.

The local district attorney advised Parkhurst he could not be criminally charged for the accident because too much time had passed.

The documents showed police were skeptical of that explanation, but it was unclear why police did not continue to investigate Parkhurst.

Parkhurst said he didn't see what he hit, and did not stop. It's also unclear why no one followed up on that tip. The case sat open for decades but wasn't forgotten.

In 2012, after Johnson had retired from law enforcement, he wrote a post on Facebook about the unsolved 1968 homicide.

It's not necessarily China or the traditional sort of dumpers that you'd associate with negative behaviour. This kind of punch-counterpunch makes Canadians like Michael Seamen really nervous.

A woman with a history of drunken driving convictions drove her auto onto a baseball field in ME during a game, police said, striking and killing a Vietnam War veteran who confessed five years ago to killing a 4-year-old girl in an alcohol-fueled 1968 hit-and-run. One boy in centre field stood frozen, but escaped unscathed.

And now, in a Hollywood twist, Parkhurst has been killed saving children from a auto.

One witness, Justin Clifton, told WCSH-TV: "After the vehicle got off the field, [the driver] came to the gate and the older guy pushed the kids right out of the way".

Mr Curley later recognised that the driver was Ms Sharrow, who worked as his grandmother's caretaker 12 years ago.

Carol Sharrow, 51, of Sanford, Maine, has been charged with manslaughter.

The irony of Parkhurst's death, that he would die in the same way that he killed Carolee, and by a woman with a similar name, isn't lost on Darlene Ashby McCann. It made a complete circle.

"It's my understanding, again I've just been assigned to the case, that she has lived in Sanford area a number of years", Ruffner told CBS 13. I truly am. The same thing that happened to my sister happened to him. She went to buy candles for her cake with her little sister and cousin.

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

Parkhurst wrote in his confession he had lied to police about the damage to his auto in 1968.
