SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - An October trial has been scheduled for a Nebraska man charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident in Iowa.

Online court records say 29-year-old Dustin Suppi, of South Sioux City, entered a written plea of not guilty on Tuesday in Woodbury County District Court. His trial is set to begin Oct. 13.

Sioux City police say the accident occurred around 3:15 p.m. on Aug. 8, when Troy Ford and his wife stopped to check on a driver slumped behind the wheel of a pickup that was sitting in a roadway. They awoke the driver, who started to speed away. But police say a trailer being pulled by the pickup ran over Ford, fatally injuring him. Suppi was arrested in Plymouth County after officers forced him off a road.
