A woman who drove through a stop sign and hit an Uber car filled with a group of friends, killing 23-year-old Jessica Edwards, has been sentenced to five years behind bars and banned from driving for 10 years.
The accident happened last February 24th at the intersection of Taylor and Mountain roads when 33 year old Kimberly Servos, a mother of four, T-boned the car with her pick-up truck. Servos later told police she’d had four drinks that night and had “felt completely fine.”
Servos, a first-time offender, pleaded guilty to charges of impaired driving causing death and two counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm.
At a sentencing hearing earlier this week, members of Edwards’ family and several friends read emotional victim impact statements.

The judge said it’s clear by the statements that the “senseless loss of life has scared and wounded them.”
