The Central Juvenile and Family Court on Friday sentenced a teenage girl involved in a high-profile car crash in which nine people were killed to two years in jail.

The penalty was suspended for three years and the teenager is banned from driving until she is 25 years old.

Initially she was sentenced to three years imprisonment but the court reduced it to two years as the defendant's testimony helped the trial.
Nine people were killed on the night of December 27, 2010, when a Honda Civic, driven by the defendant who was 16 at the time, collided with a passenger van on the Don Muang tollway.
The van then crashed into a barrier near the Bang Khen exit and some passengers were thrown from the vehicle and over the barrier onto the road several metres below.
