A learner driver who caused the crash that killed Bendigo woman Stephanie Pitson at Moama will spend at least one year in prison.
Tyrian Andrews had pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death in relation to the February 2016 crash in which Ms Pitson, 22, died.
Judge Paul Lakatos sentenced Andrews in the New South Wales District Court to a prison term of two years, with a non-parole period of one year.
Andrews was also convicted of negligent driving occasioning death, drink-driving, driving with an illicit drug in her system, and being an unaccompanied learner driver.
No penalties were imposed for those offences.
She was due to be sentenced earlier this month in the Griffith District Court, but failed to appear for the hearing, leading to a warrant issued for her arrest.
At the time of the crash, Andrews was a learner driver with alcohol and drugs in her system.
A forensic pharmacologist estimated her blood alcohol level at the time of the crash would have been 0.076, based on tests taken the following morning.

The crash occurred on Perricoota Road in the early hours of the morning of February 13, 2016.
The Renault hatchback driven by Andrews left the road and struck a tree.
Ms Pitson died at the scene, while Andrews suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to Melbourne.
More to come.
