ORD, Neb. (KSNB) - A Burwell woman will go to state prison for a 2019 car crash which killed an Ord woman.

Kelsie Privoznik-Bloom, 30, was convicted in March of manslaughter. She had originally been charged with motor vehicle homicide and three other charges related to the September 2019 death of Sandy Psota, 52, of Ord. Those charges were amended or dropped in exchange for a guilty plea on manslaughter.

A judge Tuesday sentenced Privoznik-Bloom to two to 10 years in prison.

Court records show the accident happened on Highway 11 about two miles northwest of Ord. The records indicate that Privoznik-Bloom’s car crossed the centerline and struck Psota’s vehicle. Investigators believe Privoznik-Bloom’s car was traveling at 82 MPH at the time of the crash. Crime lab results indicated the presence of several drugs in Privoznik-Bloom’s blood test. Court records indicate Psota was dead at the scene.
