HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A woman accused of a double-fatal crash in Makaha more than two years ago is set to be sentenced on Tuesday.

Honolulu police said Sierra Burns fatally struck 21-year-old Jonah Ragsdale and 23-year-old Daniel Mole in February 2018 as the friends were changing a tire on the side of Farrington Highway.

Witnesses reported seeing Burns drive off in a Volkswagen. When officers found her, they said she was passed out drunk in the car.

She accepted a plea deal and could face up to 10 years in prison.
