SCHUYLER, Neb. (AP) _ The driver in a crash that killed a 15-year-old Nebraska girl is set to be sentenced Nov. 8 after pleading no contest to manslaughter.
According to reports, 23-year-old Angel Lopez entered his plea Wednesday in Colfax County District Court as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.
Other charges were dropped.
Authorities say Lopez was driving a 2005 Honda Accord that slammed into a tree around 11 p.m. on June 15, 2016.
A passenger, Isabella Brandt, was killed in the crash. A 15-year-old boy in the car was injured.
Authorities say the car crashed while fleeing from a Schuyler police officer.
Lopez allegedly told an emergency room nurse he had consumed roughly 10 beers that night, and an officer found a half-empty tequila bottle in the vehicle.
