Bikini-clad drunk driver pleads guilty in crash that killed man and unborn child

"I still feel like this is just a really really bad dream and that my husband is just going to come home, but he's not", Kristian Guerrero said to the jury on Tuesday. Shana Elliot, 22, detailed the moments before the head-on crash that killed a 23-year-old man and caused his pregnant wife to lose their child.

"I just want to say to the victim's family that I'm sorry from the deepest of my heart", she said, "and I know that an apology doesn't do much, I know it doesn't, but I pray for forgiveness every day".

Elliott pleaded guilty on Monday and wanted the jury to decide her punishment.

The crash killed Fabian Moreno Guerrero, a passenger in the other auto, and injured his wife Kristian Guerrero, who was pregnant. Guerrero said just before breaking down on the stand, according to KXAN.

Unfortunately, the woman's infant did not survive the accident, despite the doctors inducing labor in an attempt to save him. She suffered from a brain bleed, and heard about the death of her husband and unborn child's death while in the hospital. Elliott said one man, who is a stranger, has attended the trial this week, saying he has changed his way of life after hearing about the crash. "It occurs to me though, that it's not the jury's intention that that occur, and that's going weigh pretty heavily with me", said Judge Robison.

Elliot's blood alcohol level was recorded at 0.199 when she was taken to hospital after the crash.

Guerrero testified that she still felt this was a "really, really bad dream".

Video of Elliott's field sobriety test was shown in the courtroom.

Elliott received 10 years' probation for the 1 count of intoxication manslaughter, 7 years in prison for the 2 count of intoxication manslaughter and 7 years in prison for the count of intoxication assault.
