LA PLATA, Md. (AP) — A Maryland woman who struck and killed a motorcyclist while driving under the influence of drugs has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Sixty-one-year-old Kelly Yvonn Young was sentenced by a Charles County judge on Thursday after pleading guilty in July to vehicular manslaughter.
Authorities say Young got behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Camaro in October 2015 after taking cocaine and oxycodone.
Young was traveling on state Route 234 when she drove head-on into a motorcycle operated by 47-year-old Robert Maguire of Broomes Island.
