DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A Texas woman has pleaded not guilty in the death of a woman in a downtown Davenport crash.

The Quad-City Times reports (https://bit.ly/2m2oQla ) Lauria Lee Kelly, of Alvarado, Texas, pleaded not guilty Thursday to one count of homicide by vehicle-reckless driving.

Kelly was arrested after a Jan. 30 crash in which a pickup truck she was driving hit a car driven by 53-year-old Cynthia Elaine Jones, of Davenport. Both vehicles then slammed into another car.

Jones died of her injuries.

The 57-year-old Kelly will return to court March 31, and her trial is set for April 10. The charge is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
