Posted by Unknown | Mar 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

A woman who was involved in a car crash that killed one person and injured three others was sentenced to imprisonment due to being found guilty of driving under the influence on Friday, November 22.

According to reports, 43-year-old Kelly Ann Hudson was sentenced to 130 months of imprisonment in King County Superior Court after pleading guilty to vehicular homicide, reckless driving, and vehicular assault. The charges stemmed from a car accident she caused while impaired due to alcohol intoxication. The car crash killed 81-year-old Joyce Parsons and three other people inside the vehicle.

Hudson, who became emotional during the trial, was also ordered by Judge Tim Bradshaw to participate with Mothers Against Drunk Drivers after being incarcerated.
