A Buffalo woman pleaded guilty Monday to vehicular assault after she crashed while driving drunk and severely injured her passenger.

District Attorney John Flynn says Joslyn Miller, 23, was speeding near on Main Street near Sister's Hospital on April 15, 2016. According to the DA, Miller had a BAC of .22% and lost control of her car.

Officials say Miller crashed into a parked car, causing her passenger, Shaun Monae Williams, 21, to break her femur, hip and arm. Williams also suffered an orbital fracture and severe nerve damage.

The DA says Williams needed multiple surgeries as a result of the crash.

Miller faces a maximum sentence of 7 years in prison. She will be sentenced on April 24.
