TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) -- A woman pleaded guilty Monday to causing a crash that killed a local musician in December 2016.

Troopers said 21-year-old Megan Hobbs was driving the wrong way on I-244 when she crashed head-on into a truck driven by John Holata. The truck was then hit by another car.

Holata died at the hospital about a week later.

Troopers said Hobbs was under the influence at the time of the crash. She was arrested in August 2017 and has been in jail ever since.

Hobbs pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. She'll be required to serve 85-percent of her sentence before being eligible for release.
