(FOX40.COM) — A woman was recently arrested after detectives identified her as the person responsible for striking and killing an 11-year-old girl who was crossing the street in March 2023, according to the Fairfield Police Department.

Police said Elena Lindsey McGraw-Ogans, 32, was arrested on Thursday after the Solano County District Attorney’s Office authored an arrest warrant for vehicular manslaughter.

On the morning of March 23, 2023, Fairfield police officers said they were called to the area near East Tabor Avenue and Blossom Avenue near Grange Middle School after receiving reports of a child being hit by a vehicle.

At the time, police said the child who was hit was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, however, the 11-year-old would later die from their injuries.

Detectives with the Fairfield Police Department interviewed the driver of the Chevrolet sedan that hit the child and determined that she was under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

“She has been arrested for felony driving a motor vehicle while impaired resulting in injury and child endangerment, as she was driving impaired while children were in her vehicle,” Fairfield police said.

McGraw-Ogans was arrested that day but was released as police continued to investigate the crash and the surrounding circumstances, which ultimately led to her arrest on Thursday.
