Posted: Updated:

BRIDGEWATER, Mass. (AP) - A Bridgewater woman has been sentenced to a year in jail and five years of probation for being drunk and causing a car crash in 2011 that killed one woman and injured two other people.

Patricia Neville-Colp was also sentenced Tuesday to 250 hours of community service and lost her driver's license for 15 years.

Prosecutors say on Sept. 10, 2011, the 51-year-old Neville-Colp crashed into the vehicle Maureen O'Brien Ellis was riding in with her sister, Martha Cadoff, and brother-in-law Steve Cadoff, while she was merging onto Route 24 south in Randolph.

O'Brien Ellis died.

The Enterprise (http://bit.ly/Wa7e76 ) reports that a state trooper said Neville-Colp appeared intoxicated and failed a breath test. She also told police she had been drinking at a VFW in Randolph.
