A judge sentenced Kerri Collier to prison time for causing a crash that left a Council Bluffs woman dead.

According to the family of the woman killed, Jeanette McGrew, Kerri Collier was sentenced to up to 10 years in prison, a $1,000 fine and ordered to pay $150,000 in restitution to the family.

Mcgrew died in February 2012 when a the car Collier was driving swerved into her path on a highway just outside of Logan, Iowa. A year later, Collier was charged with vehicular homicide for driving under the influence of prescription drugs.

Last spring, a witness told Fact Finders he saw Collier driving before the crash. “When I got up next to her I looked at her and her eyes were about closed.”

Blood test results came back showing Collier under the influence of a drug while driving.

"It was hard to see her face to face but it was nice to hear she was sorry. As a family we are very pleased with the outcome we thought the county attorney and the judge did very well on being stern in the sentencing process," said Chandra Mcgrew, Jeannette's daughter.
