GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a Laurel woman has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter in a 2009 car crash.

Kristen Smith, 33, was sentenced Wednesday.

According to evidence presented at her trial, on Oct. 31, 2009 Smith was driving south on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. Smith lost control of the car, which hit a stone wall and rolled over several times.

A passenger in Smith’s car, Jabari Outtz, 31, was killed.

According to trial evidence, more than two hours after the crash, a blood sample obtained by authorities indicated a blood alcohol level of .09 percent. Maryland’s blood alcohol limit is .08.
