UPDATE: CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Jurors reached a verdict in the trial of former RTA bus driver who hit and killed a pedestrian.

Angela Williams was found guilty of vehicular homicide - a misdeamnor.

The jury could not agree whether Williams was on the phone when she struck and killed Patrick Merrill in March.

 Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold gave Williams the maximum sentence - six months in prison and suspended her commercial license for five years. This, after the judge rejected Williams' plea deal last week.
