Walker man charged for alleged role in fatal hit-and-run that killed a toddler

A Walker man is facing two charges of criminal vehicular homicide after a fatal hit-and-run earlier this week.

Twenty-eight-year-old Anthony Goose is accused of running over his toddler niece Sunday morning in Walker.

According to the criminal complaint,  Goose was working on his car’s brakes at his sister’s house and the one-year-old was playing in the driveway.

The child’s mother and stepfather were inside getting ready to go to the store when Goose reportedly left, running over the child.

Witnesses say Goose left at a high-speed rate and backed into garbage and debris, damaging the Chevy Tahoe’s rear end.

Upon his apprehension, Goose blew a .123 and admitted to drinking before he went to his sister’s.

Goose’s license was revoked last December for a separate DWI incident.

Unconditional bail was set at $500,000 after arraignment Tuesday, with a next court appearance scheduled for May 17.
