Ada County prosecutors charged Ji Yun Park with one count of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter in connection with a fatal minivan vs. motorcycle crash on Eagle Road last summer.
The 33-year-old Park turned herself in at the Ada County Jail Thursday morning on the manslaughter charge and was released on her own recognizance, according to jail records. An arraignment hearing on the case is set for Dec. 6.
Motorcyclist Aaron Green died July 21, hours after he was hit in the intersection of Eagle and Amity roads by a van driven by Park, according to Ada County Sheriffs reports.
The crash occurred in the intersection, a four-way stop with signs in all directions, just before 4 p.m. July 21.
Deputies say the 50-year-old Green had the right-of-way when he drove his 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle into the intersection, going west on Amity, when Park drove through her stop sign going north on Eagle Road.
The van hit Greens motorcycle and kept going, pinning Green and his motorcycle underneath for about 15 feet before stopping, according to reports.
Paramedics took Green to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Green was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Neither Park nor two kids in the van were hurt in the crash, according to sheriffs reports.
The misdemeanor charge means while prosecutors did find Park to be responsible for the unlawful killing of Green, it was not done with gross negligence, a felony charge requires.
The crime of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter is punishable by up to one year in jail and up to $2,000 fine.
