WYOMING, Mich. (AP) - A snowplow driver who struck a woman near Grand Rapids has pleaded no contest in her death.

Austin Hill appeared in court Tuesday, three months after 26-year-old Chelsea Crawford was killed. The 21-year-old Hill was charged with causing a fatal crash but failing to stop to help her.

A no-contest plea is treated as a guilty plea at sentencing, which is set for May 18.

Crawford was hit while she walked on a road in Wyoming, a Grand Rapids suburb. Hill’s truck was located that night. Video from cameras on a nearby property played a key role in the investigation.
