ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Caitlyn Leigh Clark was sentenced to up to 16 years in state prison in Lehigh County Court on Friday.

The 27-year-old Nazareth, Northampton County, woman struck and killed two people who were waiting at a bus stop while she was driving near Lehigh Valley International Airport in 2012.

Judge Maria Dantos sentenced Clark to a minimum sentence of two years and 10 months and a maximum sentence of 16 years, to be served in state prison at Muncy.
