Woman makes plea deal in deadly street racing crash

Posted: Updated:

The woman accused of killing three people as a result of street racing made a plea deal with prosecutors Tuesday morning.

Police say Carlene Atkinson, 47, The charges arose from a crash on April 4, 2009, at the intersection of York Road and River Pointe Drive.

The collision involved a red and black Mitsubishi Eclipse which was driven by another defendant in this case, Tyler Stasko. 

Stasko's vehicle collided with a Mercedes driven by Cynthia Furr, 45.  Cynthia Furr was killed in the collision as was her daughter, McAllister Price, 2, who was in the car with her. Hunter Holt, a 13-year old passenger in Stasko's car was also killed in the collision.

Atkinson pled guilty to three counts of involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced to 32 to 40 months in jail.

She said nothing in court to address the families.

However, Hunter's mother, Lisa, called Atkinson heartless and soulless saying that she just turned around and never called 911. Atkinson had 16 prior speeding convictions, at least since 2002. She was also cited by South Carolina authorities two weeks ago for driving, which was a violation of her bond.

Stasko was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter back in December.
