Dallas police said a drunken driver is responsible for the deaths of a 38-year-old woman and her young granddaughter.
Kimberly Robinson was holding 1-year-old Taliyah Banks as she walked in the 3900 block of E. Overton Road in Oak Cliff Saturday night.
Police said they were on the sidewalk when a car jumped the curb and hit them.
The woman and child were carried on the car approximately 20 yards and were then thrown to the ground, according to police.
Robinson and the child were taken to hospitals but died of blunt force trauma.
The driver of the car, Ellis Haywood, Jr., 54 was given a field sobriety test on the scene. He was arrested and charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter.
He was reportedly detained at the scene by a hostile crowd of people who had witnessed the grandmother and child being struck.
"There was a rather large crowd gathered," said Sr.Cpl. Kevin Janse, Dallas Police Department. "...they were rather rough with him."
In Haywood's police mug shot, he has a prominent black eye but it's not know if he was punched or injured in the crash.
