POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - A man accused of driving after drinking and causing a crash that killed a woman southeast of Powell has pleaded not guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide.

The Powell Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/L62d34 ) 29-year-old Daniel Cook, of Emblem, is charged in connection with the July 16 crash on Wyoming Highway 295 that killed his passenger, 38-year-old Pilar Snelling, of Cody. Cook’s trial is tentatively set to begin Aug. 8.

Investigators say he failed to stop at a T-shaped intersection, and his pickup hit a wooden sign post, vaulted into the air and flipped. Results of a blood test have not been made public.

Investigators say Cook told them he did not see the intersection or feel the warning rumble strips. They also say he acknowledged drinking before the crash.
