Dover man pleads guilty in vehicular homicide that killed girl, 6

David W. Randall

DOVER — A Dover man will serve at least two years in prison and possibly 15 years after pleading guilty Thursday to first-degree vehicular homicide.

The fatal incident in 2016 involved an accident that killed a 6-year-old-girl and injured two others.

David W. Randall, who also pleaded guilty to DUI, awaits sentencing on March 29. A pre-sentence investigation was ordered.

The accident occurred as Randall was attempting to park a 2002 Ford Focus at approximately 8:26 p.m. on July 20, at White Oak Condos, Dover police said. The vehicle surged forward onto a sidewalk and pinned the juvenile to a tree while injuring her mother and a family friend, according to authorities.

The injured victims were transported to Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital. The girl died from injuries resulting from a blunt force trauma.

The other victims suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Randall was indicted on Sept. 12, 2016. Two second-degree vehicular assault charges were not further prosecuted.

Deputy Attorney General Greg Babowal prosecuted the case, with attorney Michael Abram representing the defendant.
