A Jackson County judge has sentenced a Kansas City woman, 27, to 20 years in prison after she pleaded guilty to four counts of Murder 2nd Degree for causing a fatal vehicular crash in 2018 that killed four persons, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Victoria M. Brown, dob: 11/25/1993, was sentenced Thursday to four 20-year prison sentences, set to run concurrently. 

According to court records, Independence Police Department officers observed the suspect vehicle, a Jeep, near 23rd and Hardy in Independence.

Near 23rd and Television Place in Kansas City, police found the Jeep had collided with a Dodge Avenger with four passengers. Three persons from the Dodge died as a result of the collision. One passenger in the Jeep also died as a result of injuries from the collision.
