A 23 year old California woman will spend the next 6 years in jail for a felony drunk-driving causing injury case that occurred last year.

Jessica Lynn Shekell, from Anaheim, was driving drunk on the wrong side of the 91 freeway on October 26, 2010 when she crashed head on with a truck. The truck driver, 49 year old Sally Miguel died on the scene and her 30 year old sister Patricia Miguel, who was a passenger, died hours later.   Two young girls, Mary Miguel, 15, and Sara Miguel, 11, suffered major injuries but survived the accident.    According to the OC Register, Shekell was driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.26%, which is three times the legal limit.
