WHEATFIELD, N.Y. (WIVB) — A North Tonawanda woman will not spend time in jail after two 18-year-olds were fatally struck by an SUV in Wheatfield.

She had also been charged with reckless driving and unlawful marijuana possession, but was found not guilty of the former.

If Marrs does not break the law for the next six months, the marijuana possession charge will be dropped.

It was determined that Marrs was not impaired by drugs or alcohol when the pedestrians were struck.
