SEATTLE (AP) - A Sammamish woman who plowed her SUV through her lakefront home, killing two family members, has been sentenced to six years in prison.

The Seattle Times reports (https://goo.gl/wV30gj ) 69-year-old Carol Fedigan was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty in July to vehicular homicide and other charges.

Charging documents say Fedigan had been drinking wine and had taken the prescription sleep aid Ambien before trying to move her SUV onto the driveway with her nearly 3-year-old grandson seated in her lap.

She accelerated instead of braking. She rammed the SUV into the house, smashed into relatives seated at the dining table and continued into Lake Sammamish.

Fedigan’s 70-year-old husband David Walker died at the scene. Her 41-year-old son-in-law, Sean Berry, died two days later. Her daughter was seriously injured. Fedigan and her grandson were not injured.
