BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck man charged in connection with a head-on crash that killed two people has pleaded not guilty.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1hmGj2T ) reports 28-year-old Jordan Morsette entered pleas Tuesday to two counts of criminal vehicular homicide and one count of criminal vehicular injury.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Morsette was intoxicated while driving a pickup the wrong way on the Bismarck Expressway on June 27 when the incident occurred. Authorities say the pickup collided with a car, killing two passengers inside the car.

The passengers were identified as 22-year-old Abby Renschler of Lincoln and 21-year-old Taylor Goven of Mandan. The car’s driver, 21-year-old Shayna Monson, was in a coma for several days.

Defense attorney Jodi Colling waived a preliminary hearing Tuesday. A trial has been scheduled for Nov. 16.
