WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - An arrest warrant has been issued for an Arizona woman accused of causing a crash in the western North Dakota oil patch that killed three men.

Twenty-year-old Kayla Ciha, of Tucson, is accused of causing a crash on a McKenzie County road July 30 while trying to pass in a no-passing zone. The crash killed men from North Dakota, Michigan and Idaho, and injured two other men. Ciha wasn’t hurt.

Ciha faces three felony counts of negligent homicide and also misdemeanor aggravated reckless driving. She could face up to16 years in prison if convicted. Court documents don’t list an attorney for her, and a home telephone listing for her couldn’t be found in Tucson or Williston.

The Williston Herald reports Ciha had been working at a preschool in that city.
