Woman who caused crash that killed 2 children on US-23 sentenced to year of probation
DETROIT (FOX 2) - An Ohio woman who caused a 2012 crash on US-23 that killed two children was sentenced to a year of probation Monday.
Kristin Boss was driving a delivery van on June 22, 2012, when she forced a vehicle off the road. The vehicle rolled, killing 14-year-old Jordan and 11-year-old Ashley Siegel.
Police said Boss didn't stop at the scene. She originally didn't face charges.
Then a civil case turned up new evidence, and in September 2020, she was arrested and charged with six felonies. In May, she pleaded guilty to failure to report an accident resulting in death and driving without due care.
"If we could go back to that day and change anything, I could but obviously that’s not something that can be done," Boss said.
Jordan and Ashley's mother, Christie Siegel, started a scholarship fund in honor of her children. The fund helps families in need.
