75-year-old woman gets probation for wreck that killed 23-year-old

PAPILLION, Neb. -- A 75-year-old Bellevue woman has been sentenced to probation for causing a crash last year in southwest Omaha that killed a motorcyclist.

Susan Barrett was sentenced Thursday to two years of probation for the September death of 23-year-old Nicholas Scarpino-Vestal, of La Vista.

Barrett pleaded no contest in May to misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide.

Authorities say Barrett turned left in front of Scarpino-Vestal's motorcycle in an intersection, causing the motorcycle to hit Barrett's vehicle. Scarpino-Vestal was thrown from the motorcycle and died later at a hospital.
