Driver sentenced to 30 years in prison after drag racing death

Miguel Romero was just 18 years old when he caused a crash that took the life of another driver.

In May of 2021, Tulsa police said Romero was drag racing near Apache and Yale when he sped through a red light and crashed into another car.

28-year-old Audreaunna Williams was driving that other car and died in the crash. Police said her passenger was seriously hurt.

According to TPD, Romero was initially charged with 2nd Degree Murder and DUI/Causing Great Bodily Injury.

During his trial, the jury considered a lesser charge and convicted him of 1st Degree Manslaughter and DUI.

Friday, a judge sentenced Romero to 20 years in prison for the manslaughter charge and 10 additional years for DUI.

The sentences run consecutively for a total of 30 years in prison.
