Woman sentenced to 20 years for crash that killed 4 people


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City woman was sentenced to 20 years in prison for a 2018 crash that killed four people while she was fleeing from police, the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office said.

Victoria M. Brown, 27, was sentenced after she pleaded guilty to four counts of second-degree murder. Each charges carries a 20-year penalty but the sentences will run concurrently.

Prosecutors said Independence police began chasing a stolen Jeep driven by Brown after she failed to stop at an intersection.

She fled into Kansas City, where the Jeep crashed into a vehicle carrying four passengers.

Three people in the vehicle died and a passenger in the Jeep also was killed.
