NEVADA, Iowa (AP) - A bus driver charged in the hit-and-run death of an Iowa State University student has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge.

KCCI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2aY8AKI ) 23-year-old Benjamin Clague, of Gilbert, pleaded guilty Monday to failure to report a crash. Prosecutors will recommend he serve 30 days in jail and pay a $100 fine.

Police arrested Clague more than a month after Iowa State student Emmalee Jacobs was found in a street bordering campus. She died at a hospital.

Initially it was unclear who hit Jacobs, but police arrested Clague after finding a Cy-Ride bus video that showed the bus he was driving was involved.

Clague initially had pleaded not guilty to leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death and failure to obey a traffic control device.
