Greenville, MO (KSDK) - A Crawford County woman has been placed on five years probation after her guilty plea to leaving the scene of an accident charges connected to a series of incidents in 2010 that resulted in the death of a friend.
26 year old Andrea Macier of Cuba was given a suspended four year prison term Monday morning in Wayne County Court where the case was moved on a change of venue.
Macier earlier had an involuntary manslaughter charge dropped against her in the death of 26 year old Christopher Bell who was found dead on Cotton Dodd Road in Crawford County.
In exchange for the guilty plea to the DWI charge, Macier was placed on two years probation. Macier was charged last August with the charges she admitted her guilt.
Originally she was facing the manslaughter charge after telling police conflicting stories about what happened the night Bell died.
Police reports stated Macier told police Bell was driving the car the couple were in, when he stopped to go to the bathroom on the side of the road. She said Bell was killed when the car rolled over him.
Witnesses told authorities both Bell and Macier were intoxicated at the time, but it was Macier who was driving the vehicle.
After being questioned repeatedly by police, Macier stopped cooperating with detectives and requested an attorney.
