GLADWIN, Mich. (AP) - A man is awaiting sentencing after accepting a plea deal in a mid-Michigan crash with an Amish buggy that killed a 31-year-old woman and injured her three children.

The Bay City Times reports (https://bit.ly/2aJcFHa ) 58-year-old Kevin Toner, of Coleman, is scheduled to learn his punishment Sept. 19 after pleading guilty earlier this month to involuntary manslaughter.

In exchange for Toner’s plea, prosecutors agreed to dismiss a count of operating a motor vehicle under the influence causing death.

Court records say Toner was under the influence of THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana

Sarah Stutzman of Clare County died at the scene on Dec. 14 in Gladwin County’s Beaverton Township, about 125 miles northwest of Detroit. The horse-drawn buggy was rear-ended.

Toner and a passenger in his work van weren’t injured.
