A North Carolina truck driver accused in the crash death of a 14-year-old Scottsbluff girl has taken a plea deal.

The Kearney Hub reports that 39-year-old Drew Davis, of Gastonia, North Carolina, pleaded guilty last week to misdemeanor vehicular homicide. Prosecutors lowered the charge from a felony in exchange for Davis’ plea. He’s scheduled to be sentenced in September.

Rachelle Kort of Scottsbluff, was killed in the June 29, 2017, crash on Interstate 80 near the Odessa exit.

Prosecutors say Davis had parked his semitrailer on the south shoulder of I-80 to look up directions. When he tried to merge back into traffic, the truck struck a 2007 sedan in which Kort was riding.
