SANDUSKY, Mich. (AP) - A 21-year-old woman accused of driving 100 mph before a crash killed two teen passengers has pleaded guilty in Sanilac County.

Laken Williams of Lexington pleaded guilty Tuesday to reckless driving that caused the deaths of 17-year-old Danielle Torrez and 18-year-old Dakota Moore.

Authorities say Williams was driving 100 mph on a gravel road last year when she lost control of the vehicle, about 70 miles north of Detroit. The car flipped several times, and Torrez and Moore were ejected.

Sanilac County Sheriff Garry Biniecki calls it “every parent’s worse nightmare.”

The Times Herald in Port Huron (https://bwne.ws/1MVK7mv ) says Williams will get her sentence on Feb. 3. The maximum punishment is 15 years in prison.
