LORAIN, Ohio-- The woman who crashed into an Amherst home, killing a woman and injuring a child, was sentenced on Thursday.

Adrianna Young, 25, pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide for the July 28, 2015 crash.

Lorain County Common Pleas Judge James Miraldi sentenced Young to 54 months in prison. Her driver's license was also suspended for the rest of her life.

The victim, 34-year-old Deborah Majkut, was sitting on the couch inside her Leavitt Road home when the car came crashing through.

Prosecutors said Young was speeding on her way to work and arguing on the phone. That's when she lost control and hit the house. She also had marijuana in her system, according to investigators.

Majkut, a mother of two, was killed and her 5-month-old son was trapped beneath the car.

Her 12-year-old son was upstairs at the time of the crash as neighbors rushed to help. One man lifted the car while his wife and the boy crawled under the car to get to the infant.

Prosecutors said Young did nothing to help, even saying she should have just ran.

The baby underwent multiple surgeries and remained in the hospital for two months for severe burns on his face.
