Woman gets 10 years in Montgomery crash that killed 2
A 34-year-old woman was sentenced to 10 years in prison Wednesday in connection with a drunken-driving wreck that killed two men on the Capital Beltway in Montgomery County on July 7.
Kelli Loos had pleaded guilty two counts of vehicular manslaughter and one count of failure to remain at the scene of an accident resulting in death, according to Montgomery Circuit Court records.
She struck the back of a pickup truck on the Beltway, which sent the pickup over a guardrail and 60 feet down a ravine. Killed in the crash were Gradys Adelson Mendoza and Franklin Manzanares.
After striking the pickup, Loos kept driving into Virginia, crashed her sport-utility vehicle, and was arrested for drunken driving. She was tested with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit.
