Woman sentenced to 18 years for 2013 crash that killed three

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH) — A woman was sentenced to 18 years in prison on Monday for a late-night crash that killed 3 people in 2013.

Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announced Melissa Ann Robins, age 34, pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and four counts of vehicular assault in connection with the September 7, 2013 crash.

Robins was driving southbound on Route 62 when her car went left of center into the lane of oncoming traffic and hit a northbound car head-on. Amanda and James Love of Hilliard and their three children were in the car.

All five family members were transported to various hospitals. Nine-year-old Elijah died shortly after arriving at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

The two passengers in the car driven by Robins, 55-year-old Sammy F. Stamper Sr. of South Bloomfield, and his 29-year-old son Samuel Scott Stamper, of Orient, both died at the scene.

Robins had a blood alcohol level of .104% at the time of the crash, the indictment alleged.

She was originally indicted on several other counts.
