GROTON, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man who was behind the wheel of a car that crashed and killed his 4-year-old daughter is now facing charges.

Police tell The Day (https://bit.ly/2j0U2hs) that 28-year-old David Ali, of Griswold, was charged Tuesday with second-degree manslaughter with a vehicle, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and other offenses in connection with the crash Oct. 31 in Groton.

Police say Ali was attempting to take a left when he was struck by an oncoming vehicle.

Ali and a front-seat passenger were taken to the hospital. His daughter, Delilah, died at a hospital the next day. The cause of death was determined to be blunt injury of the head.

Ali is being held on $250,000 bond. It could not be determined if he had a lawyer.
