GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man accused of causing a fatal accident on a Minnesota highway has pleaded not guilty to criminal vehicular homicide.

Twenty-one-year-old Daniel Johnson of Grand Forks is accused in a Feb. 3 crash on U.S. Highway 2 near Fisher, Minn., that killed 39-year-old Darcy Jablonski of Crookston, Minn. Authorities say Johnson's pickup truck was stopped on the highway and facing the wrong direction when Jablonski's vehicle collided with it in foggy conditions.
