PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A woman who caused a fatal three-vehicle collision by driving the wrong way on the Loop 101 Pima Freeway pleaded guilty to manslaughter and two counts of endangerment Thursday.

Carol Ann Sacca, 59, was originally charged with second-degree murder in the crash Aug. 26, 2012, in which she drove her sedan the wrong way in the eastbound lanes of Loop 101 into three brothers on motorcycles near Cave Creek Road.

Scott Benson, 43, died of his injuries after he was struck. Mike Benson crashed as he tried to avoid the car, and Bill Benson laid down his bike after striking Sacca's car.

Sacca admitted to driving while on several medications and that she panicked after she made a U-turn in the eastbound lanes into oncoming traffic.

Sacca is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 13 before Judge Teresa Sanders.
