FARGO, N.D. (AP) A Minnesota semitrailer driver who pleaded not guilty to manslaughter in a fatal crash in North Dakota is scheduled to change that plea next month.
Fifty-six-year-old James Toner of Long Prairie is accused of causing a crash in Fargo last June that killed 29-year-old motorcyclist Jason Viestenz and injured the Fargo man's 10-year-old son.
Toner was to go on trial starting Tuesday but now is set for a change-of-plea hearing on May 13. Prosecutor Cherie Clark declined comment on the plea deal.
