Woman pleads guilty in fatal car-house crash

By The Associated Press

FRANKFORT — A central Indiana woman has pleaded guilty to two counts of reckless homicide for a crash that killed two sisters in their home.

Clinton County Prosecutor Tony Sommer told WLFI-TV Thursday that 18-year-old Alia Sierra Sommer could face up to 12 years in prison. Her sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 15.

The July 13, 2017, crash killed 17-year-old Haleigh Fullerton and 9-year-old Callie Fullerton when Sierra’s car crashed into the living room of their home near Frankfort. The girls’ mother was also injured in the crash. A third child wasn’t hurt.

Authorities have said Sierra, then 17, was driving 107 mph and had opiates in her system when then crash occurred. Sommer says the presence of opiates in Sierra’s blood could not be confirmed due to a lack of evidence.
