ALCESTER (AP) - The woman behind the wheel of a car that struck a group of people, killing three outside an Alcester nursing home, has pleaded guilty to a reckless driving charge.

Eighty-one-year-old Patricia Berg appeared in Union County court Thursday where a judge revoked her license for a year and fined her $120. KSFY-TV reports that when the judge asked Berg if she had anything to say she simply replied "I'm just very sorry."

Berg pulled into the Alcester Care and Rehab Center last July and stepped on the gas instead of the brakes causing her car to strike residents and staff who were outside for a physical therapy session. Five others were injured.

The misdemeanor charge against Berg carried a possible 30 days in jail, a $500 fine or both.
