Semi driver in 2017 fatal Columbia County crash sentenced to jail

COLUMBIA COUNTY (WKOW) — The semi driver involved in a 2017 crash that killed a woman was sentenced today to 60 days in jail and four years probation.

Patrick Craft, 42, was driving a semi-truck at a high rate of speed and entered an intersection after failing to stop at a stop sign, according to prosecutors.

Craft collided with a van driven by Christine Novak, who died from injuries she sustained in the crash.

“This is the kind of tragic consequence that results from distracted driving,” ADA Mary Ellen Karst said in a news release.
