82-Year-Old Given Jail Time For Fatal Crash

A 82-year-old woman has been given two days in jail and two years of probation for a March crash that killed a bicyclist in west Omaha. 

Ruth Jeffers, of La Vista, was sentenced on Thursday. She'd pleaded guilty to misdemeanor vehicular homicide. 

Investigators say Jeffers didn't see a car stopped in front of her at 260th and Center on March 13th and struck 56-year-old Jim Johnston. He later died at a hospital. 

Jeffers must serve her first day of jail time on March 13, 2015, and her second on March 13, 2016. The judge also ordered Jeffers to write a letter to Johnston's wife, perform 200 hours of community service, pay $3,000 restitution and pay a $1,000 fine.
