Prison Sentence for Huffing Related Crash

From the Oregonian in Portland, Oregon:

A 23 year-old woman was recently sentenced to more than 8 years in prison for an inhalant-related car crash in August that killed a 16 year-old girl. The girl had been a passenger in her car.

The woman is a mother of two children under the age of 3 and she admitted to huffing nitrous oxide while driving. She then “blacked out and crashed into a tree about 12 feet off the roadway.” A third passenger suffered a broken leg while the fourth sustained internal injuries.

The woman was sentenced to “more than six years in prison for manslaughter and 13-month sentences for each of two assault charges. Her one year sentence for driving under the influence will be served at the same time she is serving her other sentences.”
