An Oklahoma woman will serve 24 years in prison for killing two cyclists in June, 2009, the Tulsa World reports.

Tausha Borland's blood-alcohol concentration was over the legal limit when she struck three cyclists in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, then fled the scene of the accident. Christa Voss, 33, and Matthew Edmonds, 34, were killed. A third cyclist “sustained a concussion, cuts to his back and elbow, and bruises.”

The range of punishment for first-degree manslaughter is four years to life in prison, according to the World.
