LIMA — A Michigan woman who injured four members of a Bluffton family in August 2018 when she got behind the wheel of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and prescription medicine was sentenced Monday to 18 months in prison.

Monica Nystrom, 48, of Bellaire, Michigan, wept often during her sentencing hearing in Allen County Common Pleas Court. She apologized to two of the victims in the case and said she prays for those who suffered as a result of her actions “every day … more than I pray for myself.”

Nystrom told Judge Jeffrey Reed she did not simply decide to drink and drive on Aug. 26, 2018, but was really attempting to end her own life when she struck a vehicle carrying Joel and Teri Steinmetz and their two children, Carter and Tate, ages 8 and 10 at the time. Carter Steinmetz was transported by LifeFlight to Children’s Hospital following the crash, and Tate was transported to the same hospital by EMS.
