SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Holyoke woman has been sentenced to three years’ probation on charges of drunken driving that led to a man’s death.

The Republican reports (https://bit.ly/1frl5ta) that 32-year old Maureen Healy was found guilty on Monday of driving under the influence of alcohol. She was found not guilty of the more serious charge of motor vehicle homicide in the 2011 incident that killed Thomas Monahan of Holyoke.

Police say Healy crashed into a parked car in front of Monahan’s house, flipping the vehicle. When Monahan rushed to help Healy, a second vehicle struck her car, sending it into Monahan.

The 53-year-old Monahan died two days later.

A charge of negligent motor vehicle homicide against the second driver was dropped in June.
