On June 27, 2010, Locane (going by the name Amy Locane-Bovenizer) was involved in a fatal motor vehicle collision in Montgomery, New Jersey. The crash killed a 60-year-old woman and seriously injured the woman's husband as they were turning into their driveway. Locane's blood alcohol level at the time was three times the limit for legal impairment. In December 2010, Locane was indicted for aggravated manslaughter and assault by automobile.

On November 27, 2012, a Somerset County jury convicted Locane of vehicular homicide and assault by auto. On February 14, 2013, Locane was sentenced to three years in prison for the crime. Using his discretion, the judge imposed the minimum sentence, due to mitigating factors, including her youngest daughter's illness.
