An elderly woman who struck and killed an Ohio American Water worker with her vehicle earlier this year had her license suspended for two years and was ordered to pay a $750 fine after she was found guilty of vehicular manslaughter last week.
Florence H. Lofay, 83, of Tiffin, who pleaded no contest to the second-degree misdemeanor charge, also was ordered to report to a treating physician for a driver's license evaluation, according to court documents.
Lofay had struck Gary Cooper, 49, on Wall Street as he working in the roadway March 2. Cooper was transported to Mercy Tiffin Hospital and then transported to a Toledo Hospital where he died the same day.
According to court documents, Tiffin Municipal Court Judge Mark Repp also imposed a 90-day jail sentence on Lofay, but it was suspended.
A fine hearing for Lofay is scheduled for February.
