PAPILLION, Neb. — An Omaha woman accused of being drunk when she caused a fatal collision in eastern Nebraska last year has announced that she will plead guilty to felony motor vehicle homicide.
Omaha television station KETV reports that 22-year-old Paige Seaton turned herself in to the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday after her bond was raised to $1 million by a judge on Tuesday.
The Oct. 4 crash on state Highway 50 killed 15-year-old Alexandra Linscott, of Eagle, who was passenger in her mother’s car. Her mother, 48-year-old Elisa Linscott, was critically injured.
Investigators say Seaton crossed the center line, hitting the Linscotts’ car. Officials say Seaton’s blood alcohol level after the crash measured more than twice the legal driving limit.
