A Florida woman has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for a driving drunk and crashing her car that killed her 2-year-old son and injured several others.

26-year-old Shameka Jones was sentenced on Monday. She pleaded guilty in May to DUI manslaughter as well as other charges.

Authorities say that Jones was driving an SUV on Interstate 75 near Bradenton in February 2015 when she flipped the vehicle and hit several trees. Passengers included 9 children – 10 years old and younger – as well as two other adults.

Investigators found beer cans inside the car and authorities say Jones’ blood-alcohol content was more than twice Florida’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Isaac Solomon died in the crash, and a 6-month-old infant suffered a skull fracture. The other children suffered minor injuries.
