A 37-year-old woman whose car ploughed into a St Andrew bus stop in 2011, killing two people, including a blind woman, has been convicted of causing death by dangerous driving.

A seven-member jury returned the guilty verdict against Ann-Marie Williams this morning in the Home Circuit Court in downtown Kingston. 

Williams, who is from Wellington Drive, St Andrew was driving a Toyota Avalon motor car in January 2011, when she crashed into the bus stop along Old Hope Road.

She is to be sentenced on December 10.
