OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 16-year-old Nebraska girl has pleaded no contest to motor vehicle homicide in connection to an October crash that killed another teenager.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1l8PYGm ) the girl also entered the plea Friday in Sarpy County juvenile court to a charge of failure to yield. A violation of a provisional operator’s permit charge was dismissed.

The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles charged with crimes.

The girl was driving a Jeep on Oct. 11 when it collided with a pickup truck. A passenger in the teen’s car, 15-year-old Nathaniel LaFave, was killed. The girl and another passenger in the Jeep were critically injured but survived.

A disposition hearing, which is similar to a sentencing, is scheduled on Feb. 28.
