BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A judge has sentenced the driver of a prisoner transport van involved in a fatal crash to probation.
Reports say that 58-year-old Geraldine Miller of Towner was driving the Pierce County van on Aug. 4 when it collided with another vehicle at an intersection between McClusky and Goodrich.
81-year-old Philemena Evenson, a passenger in the other vehicle, was killed.
Miller pleaded guilty last week to a misdemeanor charge of reckless endangerment and was sentenced to nearly a year of unsupervised probation and ordered to pay $325 in court fees.
She remains a correctional officer at the Rugby jail.
