DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. - A Quebec woman has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for being the driver in a fatal car-surfing incident.

Jessyka Gauthier will serve her sentence on weekends and must also do 240 hours of community work.

Gauthier, who was 18 at the time, was driving a car when her friend Gabrielle Dionne fell off the trunk in the Quebec town of Drummondville.

Dionne suffered fractures to the skull and the spine and plunged into a coma before dying a few days later.

Gauthier pleaded guilty previously to a charge of dangerous driving causing death.
