SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A Schenectady woman was sentenced to prison after she crashed her car in summer 2015.
Amy Seamans, 30, was sentenced to one to three years in state prison after she pleaded guilty to one count of Aggravated Vehicular Assault.
Around 4:30 a.m. in June 2015, the Albany County District Attorney said Seamans was traveling westbound on Central Avenue at about 52 miles per hour when she crossed the double yellow lines and two eastbound lanes. She then crashed into a utility pole.
The vehicle was significantly damaged, and the utility pole was sheared in half. Two passengers in the vehicle sustained serious physical injury.
According to the DA’s office, Seamans was driving the vehicle while under the combined influence of alcohol and the drugs alprazolam and/or phentermine.
In addition to prison time, Seaman was sentenced to mandatory participation in a victim impact panel, three years of mandatory Interlock Ignition Device upon release from custody, and a one-year driver’s license revocation subject to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
