A man pulled over for possibly driving under the influence is now facing charges in connection with a hit-and-run accident that killed four dogs and serious injured a Carmichael couple.
Monday evening, Harison Long-Randall and Gemily West were walking their dogs along Engle Road near Garfield Avenue. A light brown Nissan Maxima hit a stop sign, then headed toward the couple in the crosswalk.
Randall, West and all four dogs were hit; the animals were killed, the couple has injuries to their legs. The driver then took off.
Walden was arrested for driving under the influence, and after more questioning, he admitted to being behind the wheel during the hit-and-run Monday night.
Walden is in the Sacramento County Jail facing two counts of hit-and-run, four counts of animal cruelty, driving under the influence and driving on a suspended driver’s license.
Thursday afternoon, the Greater Sacramento New Car Dealers Association announced that they will donate $10,000 to the Harison Long-Randall and Gemily West fund.
