Police have charged a man who they say struck a mother and daughter, one fatally, while backing his SUV into a parking space on Manhattan's Upper West Side.     

Edwin Carrasco of Paterson, N.J., was charged Friday with driving with a suspended license, unsafe backing and failure to exercise due care.     

It's not immediately known if the 38-year-old suspect has a lawyer.     

Police say it happened just after 5 p.m. Thursday near Amsterdam Avenue and West 97th Street.     

Police say 78-year-old Yolanda Casal was rushed to St. Luke's Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Her 41-year-old daughter was listed in stable condition.
