LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lincoln woman has been sentenced to probation and community service for causing the death of an 81-year-old man in a traffic crash.

Laurie Clemans had been scheduled to be sentenced Friday after pleading no contest to misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide in September. However, the Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1Qle7dN ) Judge Timothy Phillips sentenced Clemans on Nov. 20 to two years of probation, a $500 fine and 240 hours of community service.

Clemans was charged after a March 30 crash at the intersection of Old Cheney Road and Nebraska Highway 2 that killed Monty McMahon, of Lincoln.

Police say a car driven by McMahon was struck by Clemans’ vehicle as Clemans tried to turn left. McMahon was pronounced dead at a Lincoln hospital.
