HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) — A woman pleaded guilty in a deadly hit-and-run crash and was sentenced to probation, with no additional jail time.

KPTV-TV reports 77-year-old Patricia Clayton of North Plains pleaded guilty Monday to the charge of hit-and-run to an injured person with death involved.

Clayton was sentenced to three years of probation and no additional jail time. Her driver’s license was also suspended for five years.

Clayton was arrested in September in connection with the January crash in Hillsboro.

Investigators say Clayton hit two people in an unmarked crosswalk near Northeast Cornell Road and 17th Avenue.

Marjorie Averill, of Beaverton, died in the collision.

A second pedestrian, Timothy Mahan, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
