A Sanford woman who is accused of driving her car onto a baseball field and ultimately hitting and killing a man appeared in court Monday to face a charge of manslaughter, CBS 13 reported.

Carol Sharrow, 51, is being held on $500,000 cash bail and will undergo a mental health evaluation before she returns to court in September, according to the television station Monday.

A bystander apparently captured video of a purple sedan driving erratically around the baseball diamond at Sanford’s Goodall Park during a youth baseball game Friday night.

In a Facebook post, the Sanford Little League expressed “heartfelt gratitude” that none of the children playing at the time were physically hurt in the incident, as well as “deep sorrow” for the loss of 68-year-old Douglas Parkhurst, who was allegedly hit by the vehicle as it drove through away through a gate.

Parkhurst later died on the way to the hospital, police said.

Sharrow was subsequently arrested at her home, police said. Her attorney, Robert Ruffner, told CBS 13 Monday he has “not seen anything about any substances being involved.”

He told the television station he’s only talked briefly with his client.

“It’s my understanding, again I’ve just been assigned to the case, that she has lived in Sanford area a number of years,” Ruffner told CBS 13. “Some indication of past employment. Other than that, I don’t have any info to share about how familiar or not she is to the community.”

If convicted, Sharrow faces up to 30 years in prison. She entered no plea in court on Monday.
