W.Va. Woman Gets Year in Jail for Crash That Killed 5-Year-Old Maryland Girl

A West Virginia woman is going to jail for knowingly driving an uninsured vehicle in a crash that killed a 5-year-old Maryland girl.

Thirty-four-year-old Karen See of Ranson, West Virginia, was sentenced to one year Thursday in Hagerstown. She was convicted in January in a June crash that killed Bryer Hendricks of Knoxville, Maryland.

The girl was in the back seat of her great-grandmother's Buick when See's SUV rear-ended the car on Route 67 in southern Washington County, Maryland.

Her lawyer says See was distracted by her crying infant son in her own car. He says she plans to appeal the conviction.

See told the court she wishes she could turn back time. She pleaded guilty in November to two traffic violations in the crash and was fined $410.
