PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle woman has been sentenced to 13½ years in prison for a fatal drunken driving crash.

The Panama City News Herald (https://goo.gl/suZAKf ) reports that 33-year-old Chelse Renee Dorman was sentenced Friday. She pleaded no contest last month to DUI manslaughter and DUI causing serious bodily injury.

Authorities say Dorman was driving in April when she crossed into oncoming traffic and hit another vehicle head-on. The other vehicle’s driver, 26-year-old Cory Harrison, died at the scene and his passenger, 22-year-old Chelsea Jordan, was seriously injured.

Dorman also sustained serious injuries. Her blood alcohol content was 0.269 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08 percent.
