TWIN FALLS, Idaho -- A 17-year-old Boise girl has been sentenced to 30 days in juvenile detention and three years of probation for a crash that killed two women who were traveling to Twin Falls to help with their father's funeral arrangements.

Shelby Seewald was sentenced Tuesday by Fifth District Judge Mark Ingram. He also ordered a drug and alcohol evaluation and said she could not drive while she is on probation. Ingram says he'll set restitution on June 8.

Seewald pleaded guilty in April to two counts of vehicular manslaughter.

Idaho State Police say Seewald was westbound on Interstate 84 near Jerome on Dec. 11 when her car sideswiped a pickup, which crossed the median and struck a sport utility vehicle head on, killing 52-year-old Dixilyn Noh and 45-year-old Kristen Noh, both of Boise. The driver of the pickup is still recovering from his injuries.
