DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - A DeKalb County woman accused of causing fatal crashes in two counties has been sentenced to 15 years in prison in the first case.

News outlets in Atlanta are reporting that 33-year-old Sabrina Patrice Townes was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to vehicular homicide in the February 2012 hit-and-run DeKalb County crash that killed 47-year-old Lymeng Lim.

According to court records, arrest warrants were issued for Townes after the 2012 wreck, but she was not arrested until after investigators say she caused another fatal wreck in Gwinnett County.

In May 2014, Townes was arrested in Lawrenceville after being involved in a seven-vehicle wreck on Georgia Highway 316.

Townes has been indicted in the Gwinnett crash, but has not yet been to trial.
