WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) - A driver has pleaded not guilty to driving while impaired by marijuana and causing a crash that killed a passenger on Interstate 91 in Vermont.

The Valley News reports 34-year-old Keith Cushman, of Lebanon, New Hampshire, was arraigned Tuesday in Windsor Superior Court. Police allege he was high, fatigued and speeding when he lost control of his pickup truck last September and caused the death of 37-year-old Theodore Haley III and injuries to another passenger.

Police say the three were headed south on I-91 when Cushman fell asleep and drove into rock ledges, causing the vehicle to roll over. Haley was ejected and pinned underneath the truck.

A judge released Cushman on conditions, including that he not drive with any detectable amount of alcohol or drugs in his system.
