ANCHORAGE - A woman accused of manslaughter in a crash on the Seward Highway in which two people were killed has been acquitted of all charges.

Danielle Jennett, a 24-year-old woman from Anchorage, was acquitted Monday in Superior Court. She was charged even though she was not impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Jennett also was seriously injured in the 2008 accident and remained hospitalized for two months.

Jennett's friend, Riley McVitty, was killed. The driver of the vehicle in the oncoming lane, 42-year-old Jeffrey McClure, also died.

Jennett apologized for the accident and said she did not remember what occurred.
