COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A Columbia woman will serve 8 years in prison for a deadly DUI crash in April of 2013.

Fifth Circuit Solicitor Dan Johnson's office reported Monday 53-year-old Aliza Lee Brown was sentenced following a guilty plea to felony DUI resulting in death. Judge Robert Hood sentenced Brown to 15 years, which was suspended to 8, with three years' probation and a fine of $10,100.

Investigators say Brown caused a crash that killed 26-year-old Jeremy Ricardo Hayes as he walked in the median of U.S. 321 near Crane Church Road.  Investigators say Brown drove down the median of the highway as if it were a lane of travel when she hit Hayes.

Hayes was taken to the hospital where he died.

Brown told investigators she thought she hit another car. She admitted she drank 5 to 6 beers before the crash.  Brown was taken to the hospital, where her blood alcohol tested at .225, more than three times the legal limit of .08.
