Police found that McElhiney was under the influence of drugs, primarily Xanax, when the accident happened. Two bags of marijuana were also found in her car.
Police searched her home in October of 2016 and found a substantial amount of drugs, cash, and paraphernalia. McElhiney previously plead guilty to two counts of drug possession with intent to distribute, so the judge sentenced her to a total of 10 years.
She will have five consecutive years in prison followed by a five year supervised probation.
