CROYDON, N.H. — A Vermont woman has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a car crash in New Hampshire that killed two people.

Police say the crash happened in September on Route 10 in Croydon, New Hampshire. They say the head-on collision killed 20-year-old Michelle Fenimore of Brownington, Vermont, and 18-year-old Nicholas Carpenter of Coventry, Vermont.

Police say a car driven by 22-year-old Kristine Lake of Sharon, Vermont, drifted into the southbound lane before crashing with the car driven by Fenimore, in which Carpenter was a passenger. Lake suffered minor injuries and was later charged with two counts of negligent homicide.

The Valley News reports Lake pleaded not guilty Thursday. She remains free on bail. Prosecutors say she was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
