Lincoln woman to begin prison term in accident
PROVIDENCE, R.I.—A Lincoln woman who pleaded no contest to charges that she caused an accident that left five children injured is scheduled to begin serving a prison sentence.
The Rhode Island attorney general's office says 43-year-old Sherry D'Amico is scheduled to surrender to authorities on Tuesday.
D'Amico was sentenced last week to serve two years in prison and another three in home confinement. She entered a no contest plea to several charges.
Prosecutors say D'Amico was driving drunk in April 2011 when she crossed the center line on Centerville Road in Warwick and collided head-on with another car.
The driver of the other car, 34-year-old Jennifer Carr of Providence, and her five young passengers, all suffered injuries.
