PORTLAND, Ore. — Two men charged in a speed-racing crash that left a woman dead in Portland have been sentenced to nearly four years in prison.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (http://bit.ly/2embRoU ) that Jose David Lara and Oswald Alexander Reyes were sentenced to 45 months in prison Friday. They both pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide in the December 2015 death of Linda Johnston.

Authorities say the two men, who are cousins, had been speeding side-by-side along a Portland road when one of them slammed into Johnston’s vehicle.

The 65-year-old victim died at the scene.

Both Lara and Reyes stayed at the scene and were not suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

They apologized for their actions in letters read aloud in court Friday.
