A 26-year-old woman from #Fontana, California, was sentenced today to 30 years to life in prison for a wrong-way DUI crash that took the lives of six people back in 2014.
Among those killed in the three-vehicle pile-up were her sister and best friend, according to @abc7la. Authorities say #OliviaCaroleeCulbreath was drinking when she drove against oncoming traffic at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour in the early morning of February 9, 2014, on a freeway in #DiamondBar, California.
Culbreath’s car slammed into a Ford Explorer, killing four people from three generations of the same family as well as her sister and best friend in her Camaro.
Her blood alcohol content was measured at .15 percent about three hours after the crash, prosecutors said. Based on evidence presented at a preliminary hearing, Culbreath had previously been arrested for DUI resulting in a collision.
She had been warned by the court about the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol and also was warned that such future conduct could result in murder charges.
Culbreath was convicted in May after pleading no contest to six counts of second-degree murder.
We’re praying for all those involved and affected by this tragic crash.
