KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A 23-year-old Montana man accused in a drunken-driving crash that killed a Nebraska physician has pleaded not guilty to a vehicular homicide charge.

The Flathead Beacon reports (https://goo.gl/4udjDv ) that Matthew Michael Hollo pleaded not guilty to the charge Thursday in Flathead County District Court and is expected to go on trial in February.

Prosecutors allege Hollo was intoxicated on June 6 when he drove his pickup truck head-on into the sport-utility vehicle driven by 68-year-old cardiologist Timothy Fangman of Omaha, Nebraska. The crash happened north of Columbia Falls.

Charging documents say Hollo’s blood-alcohol level after the crash was 0.143 percent, above the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Hollo faces 30 years in prison if convicted.
