LILBURN, Ga. -- Police have identified the victims in a fatal hit-and run crash as a mother and her 6-year-old daughter.

Police said Maria Cervantes Maldonado, 36, and Melissa Maldonado were killed Thursday night.

Lilburn police said the driver of a pickup truck was traveling south on Lawrenceville Highway just south of Harbins Road when it veered off the road.

Witnesses told Channel 2’s Wendy Corona that the driver swerved off the road and slammed into the mother and daughter on the sidewalk.

Police said the driver did not stop, but was later found on Rockbridge Road.

Spencer Prigmore, 43, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, reckless driving, hit-and-run and two counts of vehicular homicide.

On WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News at Noon, Kerry Kavanaugh speaks to the victims' neighbors and friends.
