(WTNH) — Police say a 19-year-old has turned herself in to police on a warrant stemming from a fatal car accident that killed two UConn students.

Hannah Schmidt, 19, of Hebron, turned herself in to police on Saturday on an arrest warrant charging her with two counts of negligent homicide with a motor vehicle and stop sign violation.

On September 18, 2015, police say Schmidt was driving on Route 66 in Columbia with her friends Alana Ferrante and Ryan Meegan. Police say Schmidt drove through a stop sign and a tractor-trailer T-boned the passenger side of her car. Both Ferrante and Meegan died at the scene.

Schmidt was released on $1,000 bond and is due in court on April 27.
