A woman found guilty of causing a DUI crash that killed a man is expected to spend more than a decade behind bars.

Wednesday, Anna Marie Reagan, 38, was sentenced to serve a little more than 13.5 years in state prison. She was found guilty of drunk driving in a crash that killed 79-year-old David Edwin Donaldson in Fort Myers in November 2020.

According to FMPD, Reagan accepted a plea deal to serve 164 months in state prison, followed by 24 months of community control, followed by 36 months of probation.

Fort Myers police originally responded to the crash at Ortiz Avenue and Eastwood Greens Street, where four vehicles were involved.

Donaldson was injured in the crash while driving a blue Mini Cooper. He was taken to the hospital and later died from his injuries.

Investigators says Reagan caused the crash while she was driving a red Toyota Corolla. Responding officers say Reagan showed signs that she had been drunk driving at the time of the crash.

Reagan was arrested following the investigation and was found guilty of DUI manslaughter, DUI with serious bodily injury and three counts of DUI with property damage.

There is no further information at this time.
