Woman Gets Life Sentence for 2008 Fatal Crash
By Dave Jordan, NEWS 9
OKLAHOMA CITY -- A woman who pleaded guilty to causing a fatal crash while on drugs was sentenced to life in prison Friday in an Oklahoma County District Court.
Last fall, Brittany Bullock, 24, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, driving under the influence and driving while privileges were revoked.
Bullock slammed into a car while driving down Kelley Avenue in northeast Oklahoma City in August of 2008. The crash killed one woman and injured four others, including two children.
Judge Kenneth Watson gave Bullock the life sentence.
Oklahoma County Assistant District Attorney Scott Rowland said the punishment fits the crime.
"The facts of this crime were so tragic and horrific, and the damage the victims sustained was so permanent and in one case fatal, that the only sentence that would be just was life imprisonment," Rowland said.
Prosecutors said Bullock had driven under the influence of drugs before.
Bullock told Judge Watson that she was remorseful and takes full responsibility for her actions. Judge Watson said he believed her, but he couldn't imagine her on the road again.
