ELLICOTT CITY, Md. — A 19-year-old woman from Jessup has pleaded guilty to negligent manslaughter in a fatal roadway collision.
Natalia Diaz-Valle made the plea Wednesday before Howard County Circuit Court Judge William Tucker.
Prosecutors say she was fleeing from a state trooper in January 2017.
She was driving a Honda Accord that reached speeds of roughly 100 mph on Howard County roadways.
Her car hit a Dodge Charger after she allegedly ran a red light.
The driver of that car was pronounced dead at a local hospital. He has been identified as Biik Chong of Halethorpe.
Sentencing for Diaz-Valle is set for April 26.
