Faith Mitzel of Oberon, N.D., must pay $375 in fines and have no criminal violations for two years, or she'll face the possibility of serving 60 days in jail, state District Judge Donovan Foughty said.

On May 19, Mitzel's car hit two motorcycles on a highway in Benson County, N.D., killing a woman and seriously injuring two men, authorities said.

After an investigation, Mitzel was cited for driving on the wrong side of the road, and her license was suspended.

On Aug. 3, a Ramsey County deputy cited her for driving with a suspended license and driving without insurance. She pleaded guilty to those charges today.
