A Tulsa woman who pleaded guilty following a deadly 2014 drunk-driving crash that killed two juveniles was ordered to serve two life sentences Friday.

Christina Cantrell, 40, waived her right to a jury trial in August and entered a blind plea to two counts of first-degree manslaughter and DUI stemming from the August 9, 2014 crash.

Police believe Cantrell had been drinking before she ran a red light and slammed into a car full of people near Highway 169 and 21st street.

A 12-year old and 16-year old girl died in the crash. Two other teens, including a nine-month infant were injured.
