REED CITY  — Audreyonna Humphries will spend a minimum of nearly six years in prison for her role in a 2013 fatal accident.

Humphries, 22, of Marion, was sentenced on Friday in Osceola County's 49th Circuit Court to a minimum of five years and 11 months and a maximum of 15 years in prison. She will receive credit for 326 days already served in the Osceola County Jail. The possibility of restitution was left open.

In September, Humphries pleaded no contest to failure to stop at the scene of an accident when at fault, resulting in death. The Osceola County Prosecutor’s Office dismissed three other felonies — reckless driving causing death, reckless driving causing serious impairment of a body function and failure to stop at the scene of an accident resulting in serious impairment — in exchange for her plea.

The charges stemmed from a deadly car accident more than a year ago in Marion Township. While driving a stolen vehicle on Oct. 18, 2013, police say Humphries lost control of the car along 20 Mile Road, causing the car to flip over. Two teenage passengers, Jasmine Rogers, 13, and Shaylah Jordan Gascoigne, 13, were ejected from the backseat.

Rogers died at the scene of the accident from injuries, while Gascoigne suffered critical injuries. Another girl, Lauren Brocht, 12, was riding in the front seat and received minor injuries.

According to police, Humphries fled the scene without seeking medical assistance for the injured passengers.
