Woman Sentenced To 30 Years For DUI Crash That Killed Six

Los Angeles, CA–A 26-year-old Fontana woman has been sentenced to 30-years in prison as part of a plea agreement, for a car crash that killed five people including her sister. Prosecutors say that Olivia Carolee Culbreath was driving in the wrong lane while going over 100 mph, when she hit a family head on.

According to CBSLA: 

“Culbreath was driving 100 mph northbound in the southbound lanes of the 57 Freeway and then eastbound in the westbound lanes of the 60 Freeway, where her 2013 Chevrolet Camaro collided head-on with a Ford Explorer in the early morning hours of Feb. 9, 2014.

Three generations of family members in the Explorer were killed: Huntington Park residents Gregorio Mejia-Martinez, 47; Leticia Ibarra, 42; their daughter, Jessica Mejia, 20; and her grandmother, Ester Delgado, 80. Culbreath’s 24-year-old sister, Maya, and one of Culbreath’s friends, Kristin Young, 21, of Chino, also died in the crash. Culbreath was injured but was the only one to survive.”
