Ocean County Prosecutors say 61-year-old Deborah L. Tadych was driving without headlights while traveling southbound in the northbound lane of Herbertsville Road on December 18, 2012, when she struck the car being driven by 65-year-old Susan Steeper of Brick.  Steeper died of her injuries a short time later.

Police determined that Tadych had also been involved in a hit-and-run involving a parked vehicle shortly before the crash.  Tests revealed that her blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit.

The State intends to seek an 8 year prison term under the plea agreement, which will be subject to the No Early Release Act.  Tadych is scheduled to be sentenced on August 29, 2014.
