WAHPETON, N.D. - The driver of a sugar beet truck involved in a crash that killed a Wahpeton woman has been charged with negligent homicide.

Fifty-two-year-old Cathleen Dean of Barney faces up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine if convicted. She has not yet entered a plea.

The Highway Patrol says Dean's truck ran a red light at an intersection on Wahpeton's western edge Sept. 29 and collided with a car driven by 18-year-old Annie Gjesdal.

Gjesdal was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
