Hero Who Died Saving Kids From Car At A Baseball Game Had A Dark Secret

Fifty years ago, Parkhurst was on the other side of the situation: he killed a young girl in a hit-and-run, and didn't confess until 2013 when the statute of limitations ran out and he could no longer be prosecuted.

McCann, however, said there was one huge difference between the hit-and-run crash that took Carolee's life and the hit-and-run crash that took Parkhurst's life.

As Sharrow motored back into the middle of the field and through the gate, she allegedly struck 68-year-old Douglas Parkhurst, officials said.

Ruffner said there was "no information either way" on whether Sharrow and Parkhurst knew each other before Friday evening. The confession reportedly included an admission that Parkhurst and his brother had been drinking.

Parkhurst later died on the way to the hospital, police said.

The local district attorney advised Parkhurst he could not be criminally charged for the accident because too much time had passed. Maine State Police and the Sanford Police Department are continuing to investigate the incident.

McCann said she feels relieved with the news of Parkhurst's death.

There was no closure or justice for Carolee's family or the community, said retired Fulton Police Detective Russ Johnson, who got a tip that reopened the case in 2012.

- A terrifying video caught a woman driving onto a Little League ball field in ME, killing a man whose swift actions saved children.

IN IMAGES: Nadal's 16-0 streak vs. old buddy Gasquet
Fabio Fognini beat Kyle Edmund 6-3, 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, while Maximilian Marterer won 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 against Jurgen Zopp. Gasquet was seeded 27th in Paris but has been ranked as high as No. 7 and made it to three Grand Slam semi-finals.

One eyewitness estimated there were roughly 200 people at the park when Sharrow drove on to the field, making it even more impressive, and perhaps intuitive, that all of the players on or near the field were able to escape safely.

Spectators in the stands of Goodall Park in Sanford, Maine, watched as the vehicle wheeled down the first base line, hooked right at home plate, and gunned for a metal fence leading into the parking lot.

And now, in a Hollywood twist, Parkhurst has been killed saving children from a vehicle. "They tried to get the kids out".

The driver, Carol Sharrow, drove across a Little League field and struck Parkhurst who was near the main gate of the field.

Sharrow was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

"It's an incredibly unusual twist of fate that the guy who killed Carolee Ashby 50 years ago and hid in plain sight for 44 years suffered the same fate", Johnson said. It made a complete circle.

"The same thing that happened to my sister happened to him". She went to buy candles for her cake with her little sister and cousin. "Now it is time to move on".

Parkhurst left NY and moved to ME after he confessed to the hit-and-run, and reportedly never apologized to McCann or her family for what he did. The four-year-old, cut down crossing a street on Halloween, haunted the close-knit Oswego County region for decades, prompting cold case investigators to repeatedly try to identify the driver responsible.

"I felt kind of helpless because at that point the only thing I knew was I cared about the safety of the kids on the ball field", Curley said.
