MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A woman has pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in a fatal Ward County crash.

The plea by 35-year-old Cocoa Rae Cummings comes as part of an agreement with prosecutors who will recommend she spend three years in prison. Minot Daily News (https://bit.ly/2pD6rOL ) reports Cummings was driving a pickup truck that collided head-on with a vehicle driven by the victim near Plaza in August 2015.

Twenty-six-year-old Brittany Westman died at the scene of the crash. Court documents say Cummings lost control of the pickup while going 67 mph in a 35 mph zone. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 11.
