FARGO, N.D. — A Minnesota truck driver has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter in a crash in the North Dakota city of Fargo that killed a motorcyclist.

Authorities say 56-year-old James Toner of Long Prairie, Minn., drifted wide to the left with his rig so he could make a right-hand turn at an intersection last June. Twenty-nine-year-old motorcyclist Jason Viestenz of Fargo was trailing and collided with the rig. He died and his 10-year-old son was injured.
