California woman gets prison term in motorcyclist death
May 15, 2014
A California woman received a three-year prison term after pleading “no contest” to charges of vehicular manslaughter and failing to stop and provide assistance to a person she had injured.
In October 2013, Amanda Kathleen Horn, 29, ran a stop sign in her car and collided with another car, which struck a motorcycle ridden by 55-year-old Nathan Dale West.
When passersby exclaimed that West was not breathing, Horn fled the scene. She turned herself in to police the following day.
West was described in press accounts as “a retired Hewlett-Packard employee who spent most of his time off in church.”
