Woman convicted in deadly SR-56 hit-and-run sentenced to 1 year in county jail

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A woman convicted in the hit-and-run death of a man in Rancho Penasquitos was sentenced Friday to a year in county jail.

Nicoll Koval, 23, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of hit-and-run causing death in the Oct. 19, 2010 incident that killed 34-year-old Albert Holman on a stretch of state Route 56.

Witnesses saw Holman walking along the edge of state Route 56 just east of the Black Mountain Road offramp sometime after 1 a.m. on Oct. 19, according to deputy district attorney John Pro

Holman, who had been celebrating his 34th birthday with his sister, had left his car with two flat tires nearby, the prosecutor said.

He said a license-plate holder for a Nissan was found at the accident scene, and that Koval contacted police the next day.

Officers went to her home, about two minutes away from the crash site, and found a 2008 Nissan Sentra with significant front-end damage and a damaged windshield.

One of the victim's shoes was found in the undercarriage of Koval's car, Pro said.

Koval's defense attorney maintained that the woman did not know she had hit someone.
