Irvine women sent to prison for drugged-driving crash that killed a Costa Mesa pedestrian

SANTA ANA — A drugged driver admitted guilt Friday and was immediately sentenced to six years in prison for a collision that killed a pedestrian in Costa Mesa.
Anna Marie Mcpherson, 46, of Irvine, pleaded guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and two counts of child abuse and endangerment because her school-aged children were in her car when it struck the 64-year-old victim on June 10, 2016.
Mcpherson was traveling south on Newport Boulevard near Ford Road about 2:30 p.m. when her Mercedes-Benz SUV left the roadway and veered onto the sidewalk before slamming into two light poles, an electrical box, a bus bench, a tree and then the pedestrian, police said.
Mcpherson was charged with being under the influence of prescription drugs, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
The defendant’s children escaped injury.
