CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. -- An 18-year-old charged in connection with a deadly crash in Clinton County that took the lives of two sisters has pleaded guilty to two counts of reckless homicide.

Alia Sierra was 17 years old last October when she went off the road at a high rate of speed and crashed into a home, killing 17-year-old Haleigh Grace Fullerton and her 8-year-old sister Callie Rose.

Court records show Sierra was driving 107 mph when she lost control and went off the road, through a ditch and field before crashing into the living room of the Fullerton's home near Frankfort.

Four teens between the ages of 12 and 17 were also in the car with Sierra at the time of the crash. The front passenger told detectives that he asked Sierra to slow down before they hit a bump that sent them off the roadway.
