MORROW COUNTY, OR (KPTV) – A woman has been sentenced in connection with a rollover crash that killed an infant and seriously injured a 3-year-old child.

On Friday afternoon, Veronica Andrade, of Boardman, was sentenced to six years and three months in prison and three years of post-prison supervision in connection with the crash on Interstate 84 in Morrow County last year near milepost 175.

Andrade previously pleaded guilty to charges including criminally negligent homicide, DUII, and assault in the third degree.

According to investigators, Andrade was driving east on I-84 when she veered off the road and caused the 2003 Cadillac CTS to roll.

Andrade was in the car with two children, ages 3 and 7 months, law enforcement said. OSP said the 7-month-old was ejected from the vehicle and died. Andrade and the 3-year-old were transported to Good Shepherd Medical Center.

The 3-year-old was later flown to Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel in Portland in critical condition.

The judge on Friday also suspended Andrade’s license for five years.

Lawlessness Brings Destruction

Has Fox12 started using the same word scanning program that Pamplin Media used to reject comments that have certain words, terms, and phrases? My reply to steveo was rejected because it "appears to be spam" even though there were no links in it. Censorship and fascism, Fox12?

Yeah, and driving a Cadillac STS and probably getting free food/cash on Oregon Trail Card, housing, medical care and a cell phone on Tax Paying Oregonians. Something has to change. Oregonians that have paid our Taxes for years cannot get any of these things.

5 years after release or 5 years starting now?

Look at that booking photo. She thinks this is all a game of "you can't deport me, I'm protected by state AND county sanctuary policies". Are those kids HERS? If so, how cold blooded to not be affected by the death of one of them. Especially a Latina.

I starting to think that with all they are getting away with, had they been any other color or race. They would get hard time. A little reverse discrimination.
