A Waterbury, Connecticut woman who ran from the scene of a crash that killed a young mother of two has been sentenced to four years in prison.
Clara Hinton was sentenced Monday after pleading no contest to evading responsibility in which there was a death. She has been in jail since her arrest in January shortly following the accident.
Prosecutors said the 24-year-old Hinton was in a car that wasn't registered or insured and had a license plate that belonged to a camping trailer.

She hit a parked car and the woman standing next to it, 22-year-old Genesis Baez. Baez died, leaving behind two children.
Hinton, meanwhile, crawled from the wreckage, and ran away on foot.
Hinton apologized in court.
