SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A 28-year-old Magna man has been sentenced to a year in jail for a DUI crash that killed a Price woman who was riding in his pickup truck last summer.

Alvin Clint Carter admitted he was under the influence of alcohol on July 7 when his truck slid off Pondtown Road about 1:45 a.m. and rolled several times down a 150-foot embankment.

Carter and 22-year-old Brooke Tomadakis were ejected and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another passenger, 30-year-old Chad Wink of West Jordan, suffered extensive injuries.

Carter pleaded guilty in January to automobile homicide.

The Deseret News reports (http://tinyurl.com/k43vwnb) Judge Douglas Thomas ordered him on Monday to serve a year of a five-year sentence along with three years' probation, pay a $1,500 fine and cover Tomadakis' funeral expenses.
