Woman Pleads Guilty to Citations in Fatal Crash


By Aaron Hepker

HANLONTOWN, Iowa (AP) — A Mason City woman has pleaded guilty to traffic citations stemming from a collision that killed two young girls last summer.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports 23-year-old Nicole Streets was fined $100 on a charge of failure to obey a stop sign and to yield right of way. She was fined $200 for not having a valid driver's license, and was assessed $1,000 as an additional penalty under state law for causing death.

Nine-year-old Cassidy Stehn, of Northwood, and 12-year-old Hana Riedinger, of Kensett, were killed on July 10 near Hanlontown.

Streets was driving a van with the girls as passengers to a canoe trip when it collided with a semitrailer on Iowa Highway 9. The Iowa State Patrol says the van didn't stop at an intersection.
