A driver who authorities say was involved in a two-van crash that killed a 31-year-old Michigan high school golf coach, an 18-year-old player and a passenger has pleaded no contest in the case.
Rhonda Mitchell of Kalkaska entered the plea Monday to a misdemeanor charge of committing a moving violation causing death. She had been facing felony manslaughter charges.
Three people died, and six, including Mitchell, were hurt in the April 29 crash in Kalkaska County.
A police investigation shows both Mitchell and Grayling High golf coach Jason Potter were at fault.
Kalkaska County Prosecutor Mike Perrault says he hopes the case will prevent people from driving recklessly.
Mitchell’s no-contest plea isn’t an admission of guilt but will be treated that way at sentencing, which is set for Oct. 2.
