CARLTON, OR (KPTV) -

A teen driver was sentenced to more than six years in prison for a crash in rural Yamhill County that killed two people.

Kevin Milanez-Gomez pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide Monday. He was initially charged with manslaughter, reckless driving and reckless endangering in connection with the July 2015 crash.

Investigators said Milanez-Gomez, who was 17 years old at the time, was driving a 2004 Jeep Cherokee when he failed to yield at the intersection of Meadowlake Road and Westside Road in the Carlton area.

The News-Register reported he was driving without a license and ran a stop sign at full speed when he hit a 1996 Mazda Miata.

The driver of the Mazda, Jacob Ryan Coshow, and his passenger, Petty Officer 3rd Class Shantel Louise Fugere, were killed in the crash. They were both 20 years old.

Milanez-Gomez and a passenger in the Jeep were treated for minor injuries at the hospital.

Milanez-Gomez was sentenced to six years and three months in prison Monday.
