BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. (WNDU) - A Coloma woman will spend at least four years in prison for a high-speed drunk driving crash that killed one person.

Thirty-three-year-old Amber Garton has been sentenced to between four and 15 years for operating while intoxicated and causing death, according to our reporting partners at The Herald-Palladium.

The crash happened on Sept. 9 on Interstate 94 in Benton Township when Garton was driving drunk and her car, traveling 111 mph, slammed into another vehicle.

Garton failed a field sobriety test and had a blood alcohol level of 0.19, which is more than twice the legal limit.
