GLACIER COUNTY, Mont. (AP) — A Montana driver has pleaded not guilty three months after a single-vehicle crash killed one person and injured another in Glacier National Park.

The Billings Gazette reported Monday that 19-year-old Leo James Hagan was driving the vehicle that killed 40-year-old Paul Cadotte and injured a second passenger.

Authorities say Hagen was charged with involuntary manslaughter and assault, and taken into custody at the scene.

The June 11 crash occurred near Lower Two Medicine Lake about 200 miles (322 kilometers) from Missoula.

Authorities believe alcohol was involved.

The Flathead Beacon reported Hagan could face up to 18 years in prison for the combined charges and $500,000 in fines.

A trial is scheduled for Nov. 4.
