Maybrook woman goes to prison for fatal crashPosted: Updated:
An Orange County woman was sentenced Thursday for causing a fatal crash while she was having a seizure behind the wheel.
The judge ordered Leigh Carney to spend three to nine years behind bars after pleading guilty to second-degree manslaughter for the 2017 crash in Maybrook.
During the medical emergency, Carney crossed into oncoming traffic and fatally struck 77-year-old Robert Hill Sr., of Montgomery.
The state had suspended Carney’s license because of a previous crash involving a seizure, and she never received medical clearance to drive again.
