Red Wing woman gets jail for vehicular homicide


Three-hundred-seventy-six days after her involvement in an accident resulting in a loss of life, Cassandra Smith learned her punishment Monday.

The 21-year-old Red Wing native was southbound on Hwy. 63 near CTH K last October when she went over the center line and collided with a northbound motorcycle driven by Dennis R. Manning, 65, of Pine Island, Minn. He died due to the injuries he sustained in the accident.
