DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Police in Daytona Beach, Florida, say an 85-year-old man reported missing has been found, after getting into a car crash that killed a 21-month-old girl.

Police say Ray Beams was driving Monday when he struck an SUV, crossed a median and drove onto a sidewalk, striking a 24-year-old woman and the child she was pushing in a stroller.

Police say the woman and her child were dragged under the car before it crashed into a tree.

Beams had been reported missing and endangered in nearby Port Orange.
