Hit-and-run driver fatally mows down girl in stroller pushed by drunk grandmother: Police

Hours before a driver was arrested in Friday’s hit-and-run crash that killed a 4-year-old South Carolina girl, the girl’s grandmother was criminally charged for allegedly being drunk while pushing the girl in a stroller across a highway.

WPDE reported that Priscilla Marie Clendenin, 55, is charged with unlawful neglect of a child in connection with the death of her granddaughter, Emily Grace Hall. The pair were traveling on Pamplico Highway at Lakeview Drive in Florence when a vehicle driven by Eric Snowden, 39, plowed into Hall, killing her.
