Woman convicted in crash that killed husband
MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — A New Hampshire woman has been convicted of vehicular homicide and other charges stemming from a New Jersey crash that killed her husband.
Allison Hawks Nasta, of Manchester, was driving with a suspended license when her sport utility vehicle struck a utility pole on the Black Horse Pike in Pleasantville in August 2012. She now faces up to 20 years in prison when she's sentenced March 6.
Nasta's 34-year-old husband, William, was killed in the crash. She and their two young daughters were hurt in the crash but have since recovered.
Besides the vehicular homicide charge, Nasta also was found guilty of heroin possession and driving with a suspended license and causing an accident which resulted in serious bodily injury.
She was acquitted on child endangerment and hindering apprehension charges.
