An Arnold grandmother is headed to prison for being drunk when she caused an accident that killed her granddaughter.
Theresa Fortner will spend 12 and-a-half years in prison. Fortner was driving her 20-month-old granddaughter on Interstate 55 when she crashed into a street sign, a house, a tree and a fence. The car's black box showed she was traveling nearly 70 miles an hour and never applied the brakes before the accident.
Fortner's blood alcohol content was almost triple the legal limit.
