Woman arrested, accused of DUI after 11-year-old hit by car in Fairfield

Investigators say the 11-year-old girl suffered life-threatening injuries

FAIRFIELD, Calif. — A woman was arrested on suspicion of DUI Thursday after she allegedly hit an 11-year-old in Fairfield.

According to a news release, the call for a child hit by a vehicle at East Tabor Avenue and Blossom Avenue came in around 8 a.m.

Upon arrival, officers found an 11-year-old girl with life-threatening injuries. Witnesses told Fairfield police the girl was in the crosswalk at the time she was hit.

The release says investigators interviewed the driver of a Chevrolet sedan who they believe was under the influence of alcohol and drugs at the time of the crash.

The driver, 32-year-old Elena McGraw-Ogans, was taken to the Solano County jail and booked on suspicion of driving a motor vehicle while impaired and child endangerment since she also had child passengers riding with her.

The road reopened shortly before noon. The investigation is ongoing.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of this little girl, and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts as well,” said Fairfield police.
