The woman who hit 19-year-old Eric Okerblom of Santa Maria while riding his bike last July plead guilty Friday to vehicular manslaughter.
Katelin Edwards, 20, was sentenced to probation and 100 hours of community service, educating young drivers about the dangers of driving while distracted.
According to the California Highway Patrol, Edwards was not paying attention to the road when she accidentally killed her former St. Joseph High School classmate.
Okerblom's parents say they want to make sure Edwards understands the gravity of their loss.
We'll have more reaction from the Okerblom family tonight on KSBY News at 5 and 6.
