An Austintown woman was sentenced on Wednesday for her role in a deadly head-on crash that state troopers say was a result of aggressive driving.

Waylynn Ward, 26, appeared before Judge R. Scott Krichbaum who sentenced her to six months in jail, fined her $1,000, and suspended her driver's license for three years.

Ward pled guilty to vehicular homicide in May. She had been charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, and endangering children.

Judge Krichbaum said he would have handed down a longer sentence, but it was the maximum allowed under the law.

According to a report from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, a Jeep Grand Cherokee being driven by ran into a car while passing another vehicle along Tippecanoe Road just south of Canfield Road on September 7.

Both the Jeep and the car being passed crashed head-on into an oncoming SUV.

The driver of the car, 65-year-old Daniel Harvischak died in the crash.

Also injured in the crash was Niles Schools Resource Officer Stephen Corll, whose vehicle was hit head-on.

Others involved in the accident, including Ward and a two-year-old boy who was a passenger in the Jeep, received minor injuries.
