Scott Erickson, a former MLB pitcher who played with six teams and pitched a no-hitter in 1994, is confronting reckless driving fees in connection with an alleged hit accident at California who left two young brothers deceased, according to reports.
Erickson was racing against another motorist, Rebecca Grossman, the spouse of a burn centre founder who had been formerly charged with murder along with vehicular manslaughter in the scenario, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported.
The boys, ages 8 and 11, were struck while walking together with their parents along with two other relatives at a marked crosswalk on Sept. 29 at Westlake Village, a neighborhood about 37 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, FOX 11 reported.
Erickson was detained Wednesday, charged with misdemeanor reckless driving. He has a court date March 16, the channel reported.
Prosecutors alleged that Grossman continued driving striking the boys, stopping about a quarter-mile away.
She has pleaded not guilty to the charges, which might send her to jail for up to 34 years if convicted, ESPN reported.
It wasn't immediately clear why both drivers were detained four weeks apart.
Erickson played MLB teams in 1990 to 2006, such as the Twins, Orioles, Mets, Rangers, Dodgers and Yankees. He was a part of the Twins' 1991 World Series champions.
