Distracted Driver Sentenced in Fatal Crash Case

Posted: Updated:
Boone County, KY -

A driver who admitted using her cellphone when she struck and killed two toddlers and their grandfather in Boone County has been sentenced to 7 and a half years in prison.

Jessica Hood is accused of killing 49-year-old Charles Napier and his twin 13-month-old grandchildren as he pulled them in a wagon in Florence.

Hood pleaded guilty last month to manslaughter and assault in the 2015 crash that also injured the toddlers' mother and another child. She told the court she was looking at her cellphone while trying to plug in an auxiliary cord and change the music player from a CD to her cellphone.

Hood apologized in court, saying she wished she could take back her actions.
