TUCSON, Ariz. -- A woman convicted of leaving the scene of a deadly car crash in Tucson has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Pima County prosecutors say 29-year-old Rosanne Bustamante Inzunza was sentenced Monday after being convicted in July.
Authorities say Inzunza was the driver in a May 2012 crash that left her 35-year-old passenger dead.
Following the crash, Inzunza fled the scene with a friend who was following in his car.
Prosecutors say Inzunza was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI days earlier.
The Arizona Daily Star says Inzunza also pleaded guilty in 2012 to possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and was sentenced in March to 35 months in federal prison.
Inzuzna must complete the federal sentence before starting the prison term for the fatal crash conviction.
