David W. Randall

DOVER — A Dover man is facing up to 15 years in prison when sentenced today for a 2016 fatal crash that killed a 6-year-old girl and injured two others.

David W. Randall, who pleaded guilty to first-degree vehicular homicide in Kent County Superior Court last month, will receive a minimum of two years incarceration based on state mandatory minimum guidelines.

The court will render its decision at 9 a.m. after reviewing findings from a pre-sentence investigation he ordered on Feb. 17.

Randall was 26 years old when he lost control of his vehicle while trying to park at the White Oak Condos at approximately 8:26 p.m. last July 26.
The 2002 Ford Focus surged onto a sidewalk, hitting two people and pinning the juvenile to a tree.

The girl was transported to Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital in Dover where she died from blunt force trauma injuries. The other victims with non-life threatening injuries  included the child’s mother and a family friend.

Mr. Randall, who was indicted on Sept. 12, 2016, also admitted to DUI. 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.
