The driver in a fatal wrong way-crash on I-95 in New Rochelle last summer is facing eight to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty today to all nine charges against her.

Police say Queens resident Tanisha Gomez drove at least six miles northbound on the wrong side on Interstate 95. She struck a 2005 Nissan on the southbound side of I-95 at about 4:30 a.m. on Sunday in New Rochelle. A passenger in the other car was killed in the July 24 accident.

Gomez’s blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

The accident was one of three high-profile wrong-way crashes on Westchester County highways over the course of two years.
