PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle woman has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for a fatal drunken driving crash.

An Escambia County judge sentenced 26-year-old Brianna Lynn Strum on Thursday. She pleaded no contest in December to DUI manslaughter.

Authorities say Strum was drunk and driving 92 mph on eastbound Interstate 10 in April when her minivan rear-ended a car. The car flipped several times, ejecting a passenger, U.S. Navy Chief Robert Michael Paul Roy.

After stopping briefly, authorities say Strum continued down the interstate, eventually being picked up by Santa Rosa county deputies. The Pensacola News Journal (https://goo.gl/XSyeo8 ) reports that a test showed her blood alcohol content to be more than twice the legal limit to drive.
