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.
On Monday, Snowden was charged with leaving the scene of a crime involving death. He was being held on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.
Charged on Sunday, the deceased girl’s grandmother is currently out on bond.
WPDE reported that an autopsy was scheduled for Monday. The results haven’t been released to the public.
