A Speegleville woman who was just 17 years old when she was first arrested was back in the McLennan County Jail Wednesday after being sentenced in connection with a 2016 fatal crash.

Savannah Nichole Cardoza had entered a pleas to charges of manslaughter, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and aggravated assault last November in connection with the crash that occurred on Highway 6 just north of the twin bridges over Lake Waco on November 3, 2016.

She was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years deferred adjudication probation but must serve 180 days up front on the manslaughter charge. Cardoza must also pay about $14,000 in restitution and was given five years deferred adjudication probation on the charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Police say she had been driving a car without permission at the time and was going south in the northbound lanes when the crash occurred about 3:00 a.m.

She collided head on with another car.

The driver of an 18-wheeler carrying a load of glycerin took evasive action to avoid hitting the wreck.

The truck rolled over, killing  54-year-old Donald Lawrence Ray of Weatherford.

Cardoza and the occupants of the car were all taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Hospital for treatement of their injuries.

The highway was closed for several hours after the crash.

After she got out of the hospital, Cardoza was arrested as she attended class at Midway High School.
