The young woman who killed five people in an Atlanta hit-and-run car crash in 2009 has been sentenced to at least 36 years in prison.
 
Twenty-four-year-old Aimee Michael was convicted last week of starting the fatal Easter Sunday crash that killed three children and two adults.  The crash happened when Michael sideswiped a Mercedes that was driving in the adjacent lane her on Camp Creek Parkway south of Atlanta.  The collision sent the car spinning into an oncoming Volkswagen.

The driver of the Volkswagen, 43-year-old Tracie Johnson of Atlanta, sustained a broken hip, a broken collarbone and serious internal injuries; her 6-year-old daughter, Morgan Johnson, died.
