FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) – Authorities say they have charged both the hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a 4-year-old girl in her stroller and the grandmother who was pushing the girl across a South Carolina highway in her stroller.
Investigators said Emily Hall was killed Friday night as she was being pushed across state Highway 51 in Florence.
Troopers told media outlets that 39-year-old Eric Snowden drove away without stopping and has been charged with leaving the scene of a crime involving death.
Troopers say the girl’s grandmother 55-year-old Priscilla Clendenin was intoxicated as she was pushing the stroller and is charged with unlawful neglect of a child.
It wasn’t known if either Snowden or Clendenin had a lawyer.
