Woman Gets 20 Years For Fatal DUI Crash

WEST PALM BEACH (CBS4)- A South Florida woman was sentenced to 20 years in prison for a DUI crash that left construction workers dead and one injured.

A Palm Beach County judge sentenced 45-year-old Cynthia Castoro Friday for the DUI manslaughter charge.

Authorities say Castoro was so drunk she could barely walk after hitting three workers in June 2009. Killed in the collision were 53-year-old Steve Dunn and 34-year-old Jesus Antonio Resendiz-Banales. The Palm Beach Post reported that a third worker, 39-year-old Clint Talley, was injured in the crash.

Investigators say Castoro’s blood alcohol level following the crash was .235 percent, nearly three times the legal limit.
