EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Creswell woman has been sentenced to jail time and probation for her involvement in a fatal 2013 hit-and-run crash in Cottage Grove.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1HJ1pR8 ) that 24-year-old Brittney Fletcher has been ordered to serve 30 days in jail and three years of probation in connection with the death of 74-year-old Claudia Lucille Kimery.

Fletcher had been one of two motorists who struck Kimery and then fled the scene.

Authorities say Fletcher’s pickup truck hit Kimery and knocked her to the ground, and then another car allegedly driven by Wendy Jo Beard ran over the victim.

Beard faces the same charge as Fletcher, failure to perform the duties of a driver to an injured person. She is scheduled to go to trial on Aug. 4.
