MIDDLE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) – A New Jersey mother who authorities say was texting and driving when she caused a crash that killed her young daughter will have to serve a jail sentence.

Authorities say Kristen Conner recently received a 200-day term and four years of probation for the July 2014 crash that killed 11-year-old Morgan Avery Ferguson.

The Lower Township woman, who is also known as Kristen Williams, was driving a pickup truck on Route 47 in Middle Township when she crashed into a utility pole. Her daughter was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

  1. Great Fking message. Text while driving and kill somebody and you get 200 days in jail. Idiot judge and system. There are people serving terms for minor drug offenses getting 15-20 years and nobody was even injured.
