Douglas Pleads Guilty to Fatal Crash

A Kane woman has admitted to being at fault in a crash that killed six people – including her daughter and nephew – last August.

38-year-old Kathleen Douglas was driving a car that crashed on Route 219 and Meade Run Road. Killed in the crash were 12-year-old Olivia Douglas, 6-year-old Jarett Costanzo and four St. Marys residents, 62-year-old Gary Beimel, 55-year-old Elaine Beimel, 54-year-old David Cuneo and 81-year-old Florence Donachy.

Douglas is scheduled for sentencing Tuesday morning in McKean County Court. If Judge William Morgan accepts a plea deal, she would serve 11 years and three months to 22 ½ years in state prison on charges of homicide by vehicle and recklessly endangering another person.
