Teen avoids juvenile detention after fatal prom night crash

HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — A teen driver in a prom night crash in Ohio that killed another teen will avoid juvenile detention.

Judge Thomas Lipps sentenced 17-year-old Chynna Brandon Wednesday to six months in a rehabilitation center where she will receive mental health treatments.

The judge also revoked Brandon’s license until she is 21.

Brandon had previously pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.

Police say she was driving more than 100 mph in April when she lost control of a 2013 Tesla sedan and crashed into a telephone pole.

Passenger Kylie Jackson was ejected and died three days later. Two other passengers were injured in the crash.

The group was heading to the Monroe school prom in southwestern Ohio.
