A woman charged last July with the vehicular death of another driver was sentenced today in Denver District Court.

On July 5, 2017, Necoyia Smith was traveling northbound on York Street approaching E. 29th Avenue when she struck another vehicle driven by the victim, 39-year-old Sebastian Bridges.  His vehicle was stopped in traffic at the light.  Another passenger in Mr. Bridge’s vehicle was injured.
