BRENTWOOD, N.H. — An unlicensed New Hampshire driver charged with killing two Massachusetts women when she plowed into a group of cyclists has been sentenced to 15 to 40 years in prison.

Darriean Hess, 20, of Seabrook pleaded guilty Monday to two counts each of manslaughter and second-degree assault.

She did not speak in court except to answer brief questions from the judge, and mostly looked down at a table as her victims’ relatives made emotional statements about their loved ones.

Some said they hoped for a longer sentence while others implored her to learn from her mistakes.

Police say Hess was ticketed for speeding eight hours before the 2013 crash that killed Pamela Wells, 60, and Elise Bouchard, 52, and was under the influence of drugs when she ran into the cyclists in Hampton.
