Sammamish woman who drove through lakefront home, killing 2 family members, gets 6 years

SEATTLE (AP) — A Sammamish woman who plowed her SUV through her lakefront home, killing two family members, was sentenced Friday to six years in prison.

Carol Fedigan, 69, pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and other charges July 30.

Charging documents say Fedigan had been drinking wine and had taken the prescription sleep aid Ambien before trying to move her SUV onto the driveway with her nearly 3-year-old grandson seated in her lap.

She accelerated instead of braking. She rammed the SUV into the house, smashed into relatives seated at the dining table and continued into Lake Sammamish.

Fedigan's 70-year-old husband David Walker died at the scene. Her 41-year-old son-in-law, Sean Berry, died two days later. Her daughter was seriously injured. Fedigan and her grandson were not injured.
