Jacqueline S. Zemszal of the Town of Tonawanda was sentenced to two to four years in prison Monday for vehicular assault and driving under the influence of drugs, stemming from a head-on collision in North Tonawanda last year that injured three people.
Testing showed Zemszal, 40, of Dexter Terrace, had morphine, Xanax and Suboxone in her system Sept. 30, when she crossed the center line on Niagara Falls Boulevard. The other driver, Robin L. Roberts, 26, of Niagara Falls, suffered two broken legs, a fractured hip and a collapsed lung. Roberts' boyfriend broke his arm, and her daughter also was hurt.
Zemszal was on probation for a house burglary at the time, and she was in court-supervised drug treatment. State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. passed sentence.
