JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Jacksonville man faces multiple charges in the hit-and-run death of a 3-year-old girl.
The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/12W4J3S) reports that Eric Lynn Clayton has been arrested and held without bail for allegedly striking Tariyah Williams with his car.
Police say the girl was playing in her yard Friday and ran into the street, where she was hit. Authorities say Clayton told them he felt a bump, stopped and moved the girl's bloody body out of the roadway before driving off. Williams died at a nearby hospital.
Police say Clayton later came to the police station and confessed to the hit-and-run.
He is charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, a felony offense, as well as three misdemeanors.
