BURLINGTON, N.C. -- A 28-year-old Burlington woman will serve at least 17 months in prison for critically injuring a 10-month-old baby by running her over in a hospital parking lot.

The Times-News of Burlington reports that Stormie Vancil pleaded guilty to driving while impaired for hitting Melissa Flynn and her baby Aubrey outside Alamance Regional Medical Center in April 2014.

Prosecutors say Flynn was pushing Aubrey in a stroller when Vancil's car ran over the child. Flynn was critically injured but has recovered.

A blood test showed Vancil had several prescription drugs in her system, including oxycodone.

A judge sentenced her to 14 to 26 months with 415 day's credit for time served. Prosecutors say she'll remain imprisoned for several more months before being released for nine months of supervision.
