Little Women Cast Member Sentenced in DUI Crash That Killed Coast Guard Member Picking Up Wife for Her Birthday

Former Little Women: Atlanta cast member Melissa Hancock was sentenced Wednesday to 16 years in prison after she pleaded guilty earlier this year for her role in a fatal car crash, PEOPLE confirms.

Hancock, 26, admitted to four crimes in connection with the November wreck, court records show: aggravated involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence, driving the wrong way and failing to obey a highway sign.

On Nov. 5, 2017, about 2 a.m., Virginia State Police responded to a two-vehicle crash involving a wrong way driver in Virginia Beach, a police spokesperson previously told PEOPLE.

Hancock was driving westbound on I-264 in the eastbound lanes when her 2011 Cadillac struck Daniel Dill’s 2009 Mazda head on.

Her “blood alcohol content tested at 0.112 percent two hours after the crash,” authorities told told CBS News.

Dill, a longtime member of the U.S. Coast Guard, was transported to Virginia Beach General Hospital where he died the following day from severe blunt force trauma to his neck and torso, according to the Virginian-Pilot. He was 29.

Dill’s wife, Natalie, had been celebrating her birthday with friends, Dill’s sister, Kelly Vazquez, told PEOPLE at the time. She said Dill arranged to pick his wife up so that “she didn’t drink and drive.”

Dill was en route to get Natalie when Hancock hit his car.

“He was the type of man who would do anything and everything to help others,” Vazquez told PEOPLE last year of her brother. “Just recently he had returned from Puerto Rico where he was assisting with the hurricane relief efforts.”

At her sentencing on Wednesday, Hancock, who appeared on season 2 of Lifetime’s Little Women: Atlanta, described her remorse to Dill’s family and friends.

“Words cannot express my sympathy,” she said, according to the Virginian-Pilot. “I can’t believe what I have done. I could never mean to hurt anyone.” (Reached by PEOPLE, her attorney did not immediately provide a comment on her sentencing.)

Dill’s wife, his friend and five of his family members reportedly read victim impact statements about his character and the loss they suffered.

“He and Natalie made all the right decisions that night,” Dill’s friend Aaron Goh told the judge, the Virginian-Pilot reports. “She made all the wrong decisions. And yet they’re the ones suffering the consequences.”

Tina Fey And Friends Spent The Night Picking Apart Trump At ACLU Event

A-list celebrities came from all around on Friday for an event to raise awareness of the American Civil Liberties Union’s work ― and as you might expect, they used their time on Facebook Live to take a few shots at President Donald Trump

“Earlier tonight in what is surely an April Fools’ joke, the president proclaimed that next month will be national sexual assault awareness and prevention month,” joked Tina Fey. “So now we know what he gave up for lent ― that’s good.”

Other celebrities took turns poking fun at Trump as well during the ACLU’s March 31 “Stand For Rights” benefit. “SNL” cast member Colin Jost quipped that Trump had “somewhere between one and four years left in his term.” Titus Burgess stated his belief that “the president and vice president think LGBTQ is a subway line filled with too many Puerto Ricans.”

You can find all that and more in the video above.

Woman’s Tweeted Tale About Picking Up An Uber Driver Is Quite A Ride

She certainly had drive.

A 19-year-old student from Howard University went to great lengths to get an Uber driver’s phone number.

Kelli Amirah, 19, who goes by her first and middle name, began her tale full of twists and turns at the beginning — when she first met the man who reeved her engine …

Being that Kelli wasn’t ready to “shoot,” or ask the driver for his number, yet, she improvised a plan:

Basically, Kelli hit a roadblock here.

“When I didn’t hear back from him at first I felt a little discouraged, mainly because I left my good charger with him and my backup charger is faulty and doesn’t work all the time,” Kelli told The Huffington Post. “So I was probably the most hurt about the charger.”

Uh huh.

Kelli then decided to stop chasing her crush,  parked herself in front of a few books and began to study for a test.

When suddenly …

“When he finally did respond I was excited because: A, I could get my charger back, and B, I can actually see if I have a shot with this guy,” Kelli told HuffPost.

So, now with the plan in motion, Kelli could focus on her test and meet up with the Uber driver the next day.

Her plan on was cruise control, right? 

Exhausted, she passed out. While she snoozed, the man she had been crushing texted her.

She quickly beautified herself:

And she pulled herself together.

She shoots and scores.

And they lived happily ever after.

Uh, actually, we’re lying. 

Apparently, Kelli is no Rory Gilmore.

“When I found out he was married, I was definitely a little upset at first. I’d much rather he told me from the jump so I didn’t get my hopes up,” Kelli told HuffPost.

“It really is such a laughable situation though,” she continued. “So I got over it pretty quick.”

Well, at least he didn’t take her for too long of a ride.
