CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A teenager who was accused of crashing her car into a Clinton County home has pleaded guilty. According to the Clinton County Prosecutor, Alia Sierra pleaded guilty to two counts of reckless homicide in a crash that happened in July of 2017 and claimed the lives of two sisters.
17-year-old Haleigh Fullerton and 8-year-old Callie Fullerton were killed when Sierra's car crashed into the living room where the sisters were watching TV. They were pinned underneath the car and died from their injuries. Their mother was airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries.
Investigators said Sierra was going more than 100 miles an hour when she lost control of the car. Other teens in the vehicle told police they repeatedly asked her to slow down.
Tony Sommer told News 18 the question of the presence of opioids in Sierra's blood could not be confirmed due to lack of evidence.
Sommer says she could face up to 12 years in prison. Her sentencing is scheduled for November 15.
