The woman pleaded guilty to running into three amateur racers, killing two of them, while drunk driving last year.

An Oklahoma woman who pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter after running over two amateur racers last year was sentenced Thursday to 24 years in prison, the Tulsa World reports.

Prosecutors said Tausha Borland, 39, was drunk when she hit Christa Voss and Matthew Edmonds from behind with her SUV. A third cyclist, John Moore, also was injured. All three were members of the Bicycles of Tulsa Race Team.

Borland also pleaded no contest to a felony offense of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
