SUPPLY, NC (WECT) - A woman who faced charges after a crash in June that killed her father will not face jail time.

Brianna Galloway was charged with driving while impaired and felony death by vehicle, but according to a news release from her attorney sent Tuesday, her charge was reduced to misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.

Rather than serving time in jail, she will be under supervised probation.

The N.C. Highway Patrol said Galloway, 18, was driving on Stone Chimney Road near Highway 211 in Supply when she ran off the road and hit a tree, resulting in the death of her dad.

Her father, Tory Kevin Galloway, was the passenger in the vehicle and was not wearing a seat belt. Brianna was taken to a hospital, treated and released.

Troopers say Brianna told them that she and her father had been drinking at the home of a friend of her father's the night of the crash, though she was not able to say where exactly they were.

Four hours after the crash, Brianna's blood alcohol content was a .07
