Carrie Underwood’s 10-year-old fan was killed last year, and now court delivers a verdict

A fan of Carrie Underwood, who was killed in a car crash is receiving her justice.

As reported by Pop Culture, on April 24, 2016, Albert Kirk Sampy was driving intoxicated when he crossed the center line and crashed into another vehicle.

The 10-year-old girl, identified as Isley Thibodeaux, died in the accident. While her mother, Misty Thibodeaux, was seriously injured.

At the time the accident happened, Isley and her mother had just left a Carrie Underwood concert at the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Sampy was sentenced to 30 years in prison for vehicular homicide and 15 years for negligent injury in November 2017.

The criminal had been convicted in two other instances, for driving while intoxicated, as well as prior criminal convictions include armed robbery, domestic abuse, simple robbery, theft, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace.

The 34-year-old singer has not made any public comments on Sampy's conviction.

When Carrie heard the tragic news, she reaches out to the family of Isley to offer support.

The little girl's death made national waves when the country star dedicated her win for Female Vocalist of the Year to Isley at the 2016 American Country Countdown Awards.
