PROVO — A woman accused of hitting a bicyclist in Provo and sending him to his death in front of a train has pleaded guilty to reduced charges.
The Daily Herald reports 49-year-old Maria Fregoso-Avina pleaded guilty to negligent homicide Thursday. Charges of improper lookout and operating an unsafe vehicle were dropped.
Police say the woman's SUV hit 69-year-old Douglas Crow on Feb. 15. After Fregoso-Avina's SUV hit Crow's bike, he fell into train tracks. He died after being struck by a FrontRunner commuter train.
Prosecutors say Fregoso-Avina hadn't properly cleaned the ice off her windshield and didn't see Crow. She pulled over after the collision and stayed on the scene.
Her lawyer says she'll be deported after she's released from the case. Sentencing is set for April 11.
