Red Lake man pleads guilty in fatal crash

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for a fatal crash while driving drunk on the Red Lake Indian Reservation more than two years ago.

An indictment accused Kyle Hardy of driving a pickup truck after drinking at a party in Redby in August of 2009. Two boys and a girl got in the back of the pickup truck and when Hardy rounded a curve in the road, the truck crashed and all three in the bed of the pickup were ejected. The girl died as a result of her injuries.

KSTP-TV says the 21-year-old Hardy is facing up to eight years in prison.
