CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A Nevada woman involved in a deadly driving under the influence crash has been sentenced to a minimum of eight years and a maximum of 20 years in prison for each of her felonies.

The Nevada Appeal reported (https://bit.ly/2pGV093 ) Monday that 29-year-old Megan Amirr had been sentenced after pleading guilty to one count each of driving under the influence causing death and driving under the influence of a controlled substance causing substantial bodily harm.

Amirr will serve the two sentences concurrently.

The crash had occurred in March 2015 when Amirr swerved across the center line of a road and hit a northbound vehicle head on. The driver of the vehicle she hit died at the scene and the passenger had been injured.

Officials say Amirr had methamphetamine, amphetamine and oxycodone in her system at the time of the crash.
