Woman seeks release from probation

CHELSEA—A woman convicted for her role in a 2007 fatal car crash on Route 5 in Newbury wants an early discharge from probation.
A court hearing has been scheduled for next week on the request by Kristy O’Meara, who was convicted of gross negligent operation with death resulting after the car she was driving collided with another car driven by Christina Vinnacombe, a North Haverhill woman who was 8 months pregnant at the time of the crash. The baby was stillborn at the scene. Vinnacombe, who was on her way to work as a waitress at P&H Truck Stop in Wells River, died two weeks later.
