DAKOTA CITY, Neb. (AP) - An Iowa woman has pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide for fatally striking a pedestrian in northeast Nebraska.

The Sioux City Journal reported that Maria Gonzalez-Diego, of Sioux City, Iowa, entered the plea Tuesday in Dakota County District Court. In return, prosecutors dropped a charge of failure to stop at the scene of a fatal accident. Her sentencing is scheduled for March 10.

South Sioux City police have said Gonzalez-Diego's northbound vehicle hit 62-year-old Antonia Lopez De Ramirez the night of June 24 as she walked east across a street. Gonzalez-Diego's vehicle continued north, police said. A Sioux City, Iowa, officer later found Gonzalez-Diego and arrested her.
