ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) – A woman has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a car crash at an eastern Pennsylvania bus stop that claimed two lives.

Twenty-seven-year-old Caitlyn Clark pleaded guilty Wednesday in Lehigh County Court to two counts of vehicular homicide and related charges in the September 2012 crash.

Prosecutors said Clark was driving with a suspended license when her SUV plowed into a group of people at a Hanover Township bus stop.

Fifty-two-year-old Elias Tabarani of Allentown died at the scene and 28-year-old Angel Bosch of Easton later died at a hospital. Two other men suffered serious injuries.

Prosecutor Richard Director said under state sentencing guidelines, Clark faces a sentence from six months to two years and 10 months in prison.

Defense attorney Harold DeWalt declined to comment following the hearing.
