Hanin Goma gets 5 years in fatal, DUI crash in Skokie
March 20, 2013 (SKOKIE, Ill.) (WLS) -- A Skokie woman who caused a crash that killed a 9-year-old boy last May was sentenced to five years in prison.
Prosecutors say Hanin Goma had drugs in her system when she caused a chain-reaction crash that killed 9-year-old Carter Vo. Investigators say Goma hit a van as she was making a left turn, causing her car to spin and land on a sidewalk where the boy was riding his bike. The boy died at the scene.
Blood and urine tests show that Goma had cannabis and amphetamines in her system.
