Ward Sentenced In Councilman's Death
SANTA ANA -- A Walnut woman responsible for the crash that left Orange Councilman Steve Ambriz dead received the maximum sentence today.
A judge sentenced Sara Lyn Ward, 31, to 10 years in prison for gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and in possession of marijuana.
This comes a year after Ward got in her truck while under the influence of methamphetamines. As she traveled west on Santiago Canyon Road, she swerved into oncoming traffic hitting Ambriz's sedan head-on.
