Carol Sharrow is surrounded by guards and her lawyer at the York County Superior Court in Alfred on Monday. Sharrow was charged with manslaughter in the death of Douglas Parkhurst who was killed in a hit-and-run crash during a baseball game at Goodall Pa

A Vietnam veteran who "gave his life" while trying to save others as a auto sped through a youth baseball game in ME had previously confessed to being on the other side of the wheel of a deadly accident - a decades-old hit-and-run that left a 4-year-old girl dead, police said.

Sharrow, 51, of Sanford, Maine, was arrested shortly after the crash Friday and charged with manslaughter, according to Sanford Maine police.

Carol Sharrow has been in custody since she tried to flee the scene at Goodall Park last week after driving her sedan onto the field as little leaguers played their 9am game, speeding around the bases as children began to scream.

Douglas Parkhurst, of West Newfield, was near the park's main gate before he was hit and the vehicle sped away.

The obvious is that Parkhurst died the way her sister died: struck by a hit-and-run driver, she said.

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

She was transported to York County Jail. "I did not see what I hit". He and his brother had been drinking when they left their brother's house and drove into Fulton; his brother was passed out in the back seat.

In a unusual twist of fate, Parkhurst struck and killed a 4-year-old girl in a hit-and-run on Halloween night in 1968, when he was 18, the Press Herald reports.

"Maybe in some way, in that slight second, maybe he understood more of what he did [to Carolee]", Ashby said. "I know it's wrong, but I am relieved". She went to buy candles for her cake with her little sister and cousin.

In an eerie twist, it has since been revealed that Parkhurst earlier confessed to striking and killing Carolee Ashby, 4, in NY on Halloween night in 1968.

Sharrow's attorney declined to comment on a possible motive or whether Sharrow knew anyone at the field.

"We want to share our heartfelt gratitude that physically all of the players from Babe Ruth and Little League are safe and our deep sorrow to the family of the fearless man that gave his life tonight protecting others", Sanford Little League officials said in a social media posting, per the Journal Tribune.

It has been revealed that Douglas Parkhurst joined the U.S. air force eight months after the hit and run of Carolee Ashby and served in Vietnam as a cook. I don't remember hitting the brakes. He admitted that he believed that he hit Ashby that night.

"That did not happen, but I don't know why the police never challenged me on this", he wrote. "I would have told them the truth".

Sharrow has two prior convictions for driving under the influence, WMTW reported. "Now it is time to move on".

"I know my mum would have been grateful that children were saved", Ms McCann told the Portland Press Herald.

He also said that he had been given no indication that alcohol was involved, and did not know if Ms Sharrow and Mr Parkhurst knew each other. "Sometime I may be able to forgive him, but not right now".
