ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - A woman who drove her vehicle across the center line on Highway 133 and collided head-on with another vehicle, killing a 21-year-old college student, will serve no jail time.

The Aspen Times reports (https://bit.ly/1OerZYd ) that Christine Tinner was sentenced to five years of probation, 360 hours of community service and fined $1,000 Tuesday following her Feb. 3 guilty plea. The August 23 crash killed 21-year-old Meleyna Kistner.

Tinner brought a bouquet of roses to Tuesday’s sentencing, delivering a single flower to each member of the victim’s family. Heather Kistner, the victim’s stepmother, threw the flowers back.

Tinner sobbed loudly and was hospitalized during what was supposed to be her sentencing in February.

The family said they have not decided if they will file a civil suit.
