ALBANY, Ore. – Brian James McIntire will serve 20 years in prison for causing the deaths of a mother and her child in a 2019 drunken driving crash.

In December, a jury found the 30-year-old Sweet Home man guilty of two counts of first-degree manslaughter following a trial in Albany. Because these are Measure 11 crimes, McIntire is not eligible for early release from prison.

The crash on July 23, 2019, killed Stormy Barge, 24, and her daughter, Emma Pulido, 5.

McIntire was ordered to serve 10 years in prison on each count of first-degree manslaughter, with the prison terms to be served consecutively, for a total of 20 years. Restitution will be determined later.

He will serve three years of post-prison supervision. The judge ordered his driver’s license to be suspended permanently.

McIntire was also convicted of one count of fourth-degree assault and one count of driving under the influence of intoxicants in the fatal crash.

McIntire was sentenced Wednesday in Linn County Circuit Court.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office reported previously that in July 2019, McIntire was driving a 1999 Jeep Wrangler northbound on Brush Creek Road east of Crawfordsville when it left its lane of travel and collided with a southbound Mitsubishi Lancer driven by Ty Kirkland, 23. Stormy Barge and her two children were passengers in the Mitsubishi. Kirkland and Macy Pulido, 3, were injured in the crash.
