BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck man has changed his plea to guilty for charges stemming from a June head-on crash that killed two people.

KXMB television reports (https://bit.ly/1Ybvcsd ) that Jordan Morsette changed his plea Monday morning for two counts of criminal vehicular homicide and one count of criminal vehicular injury. He had originally pleaded not guilty in August.

Authorities say Morsette was intoxicated while driving a pickup truck the wrong way on the Bismarck Expressway in Mandan. The pickup collided with a car, killing 22-year-old Abby Renschler and 21-year-old Taylor Goven and injuring 21-year-old Shayna Monson.

Morsette’s attorney said Morsette reevaluated the evidence against him and decided he didn’t want to put the family through a trial.

He’ll be sentenced at a later date.
