CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A girl accused of using inhalants before she crashed into the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, killing her two passengers, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1r9q6kL ) Jessica Carnline entered her plea Friday in the Sept. 21 crash that killed Brandon Avery and Amanda Strickland, both 27. She was 17 at the time of the crash but is being tried as an adult.

Investigators say that at the time of the crash, Carnline had chemicals in her blood consistent with those found in canned air duster. She is estimated to have been traveling 76 mph, and there is no indication she hit the brakes.

Prosecutors say Carnline was released from juvenile detention a few hours before the crash.
