FORT BEND COUNTY, TX – A woman was sentenced to 15 years in prison for her role in a fatal hit-and-run crash in Fort Bend County of June of 2019, according to the KHOU 11.

Angela Nicole Smith was driving on Bissonnet Street near Holley Elementary School when she ran a red light at Hodges Bend Drive. She hit an 8-year-old girl who was crossing the street with her brothers. The young victim was thrown into the air and was rushed to the hospital. She died from her injuries two days later.

Smith fled the scene, eventually crashing into another vehicle 20 minutes later. She was arrested within 24 hours of the accident, and told police she did not stop because she had a suspended license.
