A 29-year-old Hacienda Heights woman

was sentenced Friday to 19 years prison after striking and killing a Santa

Monica boy on the 60 Freeway on June 3 last year, according to the San Gabriel

Valley Tribune.

The Tribune reports Tina Marie Silva

pleaded guilty at El Monte Superior Court to gross vehicular manslaughter while

intoxicated and leaving the scene of the collision on the right shoulder of the

freeway.

Maximillion Petrakos, 13, was killed

while his mother, Mary Hively, then 41, and his 10-year-old brother were

injured in the hit-and-run.

Silva, who was on her way home from

a graduation party, pleaded to the two felony charges and admitted great bodily

injury allegations for two victims who survived.
