Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- A Minot woman has been sentenced for causing a car crash that critically injured a Hendrum couple last fall.

25-year-old Brianna Pallotta was convicted of DWI and Criminal Vehicular Homicide or Operation.

She was sentenced to 5 years in prison with credit for time served.

In October, Pallotta was driving on highway 75 north of Moorhead, when she hit another car head-on. Pallotta was trapped inside her burning car and had to be rescued by a deputy and passerby. The rescue was caught on law enforcement dash cam video.

The elderly couple in the second car, Nolan and Doris Underlee were critically injured.
