Auto barrels onto Sanford baseball field during game, kills man

Parkhurst was rushed to the hospital, but died en route.

A man who five years ago confessed he was responsible for the 1968 hit-and-run death of a 4-year-old girl in Fulton was run over and killed Friday night in ME, according to police and media reports.

Douglas Parkhurst, 68, of West Newfield, died after Carol Sharrow, 52, of Sanford allegedly struck him with her vehicle as she was trying to speed out of Goodall Park after creating a scene of panic and chaos on the field, according to police reports.

According to the newspaper, video shot Friday by a witness shows a maroon Honda sedan driving around the bases, as young Babe Ruth League players, coaches and fans scramble to get out of the way.

Corporal Matthew Gagne of the Sanford Police Department identified the victim as Douglas Parkhurst, 68. She was taken to York County Jail in Alfred, where she remained on Saturday.

One witness captured video of the auto as it entered the field and did a loop behind home plate. The driver then "sped toward the open main gate" and hit a pedestrian as she fled the scene, investigators said.

The Sanford Little League posted a message to the community on their Facebook page.

One witness detailed Parkhurst's heroics.

Sharrow was arrested and charged with manslaughter.

From there, witnesses say the vehicle exited the field and struck Parkhurst on a roadway that encircles the ballpark.

In 1968, Parkhurst ran over and killed four-year-old Carolee Ashby.

"After the auto got off the field, (the driver) came to the gate, and the older guy pushed the kids right out the way".

Parkhurst had confessed to the 1968 hit-and-run after being interviewed by two investigators looking into the 44-year-old crime in 2013, reported The Press Herald. He initially told the police he had hit a guardrail, not a child.

Maine State Police reconstructed the incident late Friday night.
