Barney, ND (WDAY TV) - A Barney, North Dakota woman plans to admit her role in a crash that killed a Wahpeton teenager last fall.

53-year old Cathleen Dean has pleaded not guilty to negligent homicide. A change of plea hearing is planned for August.

Dean was driving a beet truck that ran a red light, killing 18-year old Antoinette Gjesdahl. She admits seeing the light change to yellow, but thought she could make it through the intersection.

Dean ended up slamming into Gjesdahl's car.
