A 55-year-old Braidwood woman was sentenced to four and half years in prison Tuesday for a car crash that killed a Shorewood man last March.
Donna Durkin entered a blind plea one-count of aggravated driving under the influence.
It was on March 15, 2016 when Durkin was southbound on a Frontage Road in Wilmington Township. Records show she veered into the northbound lane and struck another vehicle head-on. The driver of the other vehicle, 79-year-old Lavon Smith, was taken to Loyola Medical Center where he died five days later.
Durkin suffered a broken wrist and ribs in the crash.
