An 18-year-old girl who was the driver of a sedan which collided with a passenger van on the Don Muang tollway in December 2010, causing the death of nine people, was given a suspended two-year prison sentence by the Central Juvenile and Family Court on Friday. 

On the night of Dec 27, 2010, a Honda Civic driven by Orachorn "Praewa" Thephasadin Na Ayudhya, who was 16 at the time, collided with the passenger van on the elevated Don Muang tollway.

The van then crashed into a barrier near the Bang Khen exit. Passengers were thrown from the vehicle and fell several metres to the road below. Orachorn sustained minor injuries.
