Medford Couple Sentenced for Hit-and-run That Killed 2


A Medford couple was spared jail time when they were sentenced Monday for their role in a hit-and-run crash that left two people dead last year.

Kathy Horan had pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident in January at Suffolk County court. Her husband, Frank Horan, pleaded guilty to criminal facilitation.

Police have said Kathy was driving driving her Hyundai Santa Fe eastbound on Granny Road in Medford when she struck 28-year-old Peter Quoma of Selden and his two passengers who were standing near his parked Nissan Maxima, as well as 58-year-old Lynn May of Lake Grove, who was standing next to her parked vehicle at 8:21 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19, 2016.

Quoma died shortly after the crash. May died about a week later. The two victims were involved in a collision moments earlier and were inspecting the damage when they were hit, authorities have said.

After initially stopping, Frank Horan drove when he and Kathy fled the scene of the crash, Newsday reported.

Judge John Collins sentenced Kathy to 5 years of probation, 560 hours of community service and a $5,000 fine. Frank was sentenced to 3 years of probation and 260 hours of community service.
