CORVALLIS, Ore. -- A Corvallis woman has been sentenced to prison in a 2019 car crash that killed her teenage daughter. 

Kayla Margie Carter, 32, pleaded guilty in October to criminally negligent homicide and third-degree assault. She also pleaded no contest to driving under the influence of intoxicants. 

She was accused of running a stop sign at an intersection in Polk County in March 2019 and hitting another car. Her 13-year-old daughter Brianna was in the passenger seat and died at the scene. The driver of the other car was injured. 

Carter was sentenced Dec. 8 to two years and 10 months in prison. She will also serve three years of post-prison supervision and her driver's license is suspended for life.
