SANTA ANA -- A drunken driver was sentenced to 15 years in state prison Friday in connection with a 2010 crash that injured nine people, dragging a woman and her two-year-old daughter more than 50 feet along a street in Santa Ana.

Miguel Sandoval, 43, was driving his 1998 Chevy Suburban along the 1400 block of West McFadden on Sept. 6, 2010 when he hit a woman and her two-year-old daughter.

Witnesses said Sandoval was cutting across lanes before his vehicle jumped a curb and went onto the sidewalk.

The mother, identified as 23-year-old Gabriela F., and daughter were trapped under the SUV and dragged about 50 feet.

The car then hit seven other people.

Her mother suffered a broken leg and the 2-year-old sustained fractures and extensive burns.

Two other adults and another 2-year-old girl suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Sandoval was sentenced Friday on two felony count each of driving under the influence and two felony counts of mayhem.
